Outdoor rinks set to close for the season

March 3, 2020 1:29 PM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

This Sunday, all outdoor rinks will close for the season due to spring-like temperatures.

On Sunday, March 8 all outdoor rinks, including Bower Ponds, will close and signage will be placed on-site advising the public to stay off the ice.

The recent snowfall and warmer temperatures have created deteriorating ice conditions at the ice oval at Setters Place; as a result, it closed Monday, March 2. As the ice melts, Setters Place will transition back to its summer form, ready for football, soccer and rugby. Information about Setters Place and how to book the facility and field can be found at www.reddeer.ca/settersplace .
