Special thanks to the Community Ice Rink Captains, Volunteers and Community Associations who applied for, set up and maintained 21 outdoor community run ice rinks this winter. Ice rink captains and volunteers spend counless hours flooding, shovelling, scraping and more shovelling to ensure quality ice for their neighbourhood. We hear time and time again how Prince George citiznes of all ages use and enjoy these community rinks througout our City.
Every year the City of Prince George gives out Ice Rink subsidies to not only show our appreciation but also to assist with maintaining eqiupment and supplies so that volunteers can continue to operate and maintain these community treasures.
