City of Calgary Outdoor Rinks

Outdoor Ice Skating in the City of Calgary

The City of Calgary outdoor skating rinks are seasonal and typically open mid to late December through February. Except for Olympic Plaza which, is generally open from mid-November to mid-March because of its refrigerated ice surface.

Ice conditions, of course, can change with the weather and rinks may close if conditions decline or maintenance is required.

The following outdoor skating rinks are maintained by The City:

Big Marlborough Park - 6033 Madigan Drive NE.

Bowness Park Lagoon (rentals available) - ​8900 48 Avenue NW

City-maintained outdoor ice skating rinks are free of cost to use and flooded as required. Hockey sticks and/or nets are not permitted, and helmets are recommended. Please stay off the ice while it is being cleared of snow. 

Volunteer-run Outdoor Rinks

The City has over 45 adopted rinks and more than 150 volunteers involved in the program. Adopt-a-Rink is a fun, social program that provides people with the opportunity to get together with friends and neighbours. And to help keep local skating rinks flooded, clean, and well maintained.
