Rink Season 2007

About the rink

The rink is big and inviting

The park has a fairly new (rebuilt less than ten years ago) single pad rink, and the pad is larger than the usual hockey pad -- almost Olympic size. Because the rink is located in the middle of a neighborhood and away from any main roads, it has fewer people skating there. Sometimes it's even empty for a few hours -- a great discovery for shinny players.

Single pad rinks have a tough time attracting pleasure skaters, since there are so many hockey players who "hog" the rink. However, pleasure skaters who are frustrated can always go over to Wallace Rink -- only ten minutes' walk away. It's a double pad, just rebuilt, with the pleasure pad "in the round."

See the Rink Schedule.
