 This map is also available as a downloadable PDF.

Please contact your local Community Association to get involved or call 250-561-7649 for more information.


How Do I Get an Ice Rink in my Neighbourhood?

Each outdoor ice rink is sponsored by a Community Association and is maintained by volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering at a rink in your neighbourhood contact your Community Association or the Community Partnerships Division with the City of Prince George at 250-561-7600.  Community Associations submit their ice rink applications in the fall. 

Each rink must have a certified ice rink captain who has attended the Outdoor Ice Maintenance Certification Workshop.  This workshop covers basic flooding equipment, use of fire hydrants and standpipes and flooding techniques.   This workshop is offered at the end of November.   Please register in advance by phoning 250-561-7600 or coming into city hall. 

Sorry - this workshop has already taken place.  Please check back in November 2015 for the next one.

Outdoor Rinks – Things to Remember

  • Protective equipment including helmet, knee pads, elbow pads recommended
  • Profanity, physical abuse or horseplay is not allowed
  • Skaters and hockey players be considerate of each other, divide up ice so everyone can enjoy this outdoor activity
  • Help keep the area free of litter
  • Remember, these rinks are maintained by volunteers, so please bring a shovel and help keep it clear of snow.
