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).

Our Brookside rinks are owned, built and maintained by the Riverbend Community League! Please purchase a membership and support your league.

Please note: Rinks are dependent on volunteers. If you are interested in joining the rinks team as a volunteer, please reach out to info@riverbenonline.ca.

**Your Community League Membership and Skate Tags are valid for skating at all Edmonton Community League Rinks, including at nearby Brookview and The Ridge Community Leagues.
