Hard working City crews along with the recent cold weather have helped to ensure outdoor neighbourhood rinks and natural skating surfaces are now ready for use.

We would like to remind everyone that the use of helmets is recommended at all times and that hockey pucks and sticks are not permitted at Bower Ponds or the Recreation Centre Oval.
