Both East and West Rinks are now OPEN for the 2018/2019 season.
Please note that rink use is subject to the weather. Rinks may close due to above zero or below -25 with wind chill. Check on the Riverbend Community League Facebook page for updates as they happen.
Skating in Your Neighbourhood
Sharpen those blades and enjoy some winter fun with friends or family at our community’s Brookside Rinks! Skating is free with a community league membership – just wear your skate tag. We offer two rinks, one for shinny hockey and one for social skating (no sticks/no pucks).
Brookside Skating Rinks
Brookside Rinks are located at 53 Ave. & 143 St. just south of Brookside School.
- Our hours are 8am to 9pm except when closed for maintenance or inclement weather
- The rinks are unsupervised – Skate at your own risk
- Helmets are strongly recommended for all skaters, and are mandatory for minors under the age of 18
- No smoking around the skating areas
- Community League membership and skate tags are required to use the rinks
- No pucks sticks or sticks allowed on the West rink
- The change rooms will be open:
Monday - Friday 4pm to 9pm
Saturday Noon to 9pm
Sunday Noon to 6pm
Holidays Noon to 9pm
Just a reminder, when the temperature climbs above 0 degrees centigrade we close and lock the rinks to ensure that no one is injured when the ice gets soft. There has been more water put on the ice sheets this year so we should be able to carry the ice further into the spring but, of course, it is weather dependent.
