Community Outdoor Ice Rink

Each outdoor ice rink is sponsored by a Community Association.  An outdoor ice rink application package is sent to each Community Association in September of each year.  The Community Association submits rink requests by mid October and rink locations are approved by the City of Prince George.   It is recommended that each rink have a captain with at least 2 - 3 volunteers committed to flooding and maintaining the rink for the winter.

All rinks must have a certified ice rink captain who has attended the Outdoor Ice Maintenance Certification Program.  This workshop will cover basic flooding equipment, use of fire hydrants and standpipes and flooding techniques.  Please register in advance by phoning 250-561-7600 or coming into city hall. 

Call 250-561-7600 to sign up for the Free workshop on Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 at 6:30 pm in the City Hall Annex.

Please call our Community Coordinator at 250-561-7649 with any further questions or for more information.
