Community outdoor rinks are built, maintained and operated by volunteer community groups. Outdoor ice rinks are open to all members of the City to enjoy.
Apply to volunteer to build a rink
Volunteer groups can apply to build a community rink in any park throughout Quinte West, provided it offers a reasonably flat surface, sufficient lighting, access for emergency vehicles and adequate parking. Volunteer groups applying should be prepared to build, operate and maintain the outdoor ice rinks.
Volunteer groups must allow all community members free and equal access to outdoor ice rinks. Volunteer groups are responsible for acquiring the materials needed to build, operate and maintain the ice rink and must be prepared to store all equipment.
