Community Outdoor Ice Rinks
The City's Community Associations also sponsor a number of outdoor ice rinks that are maintained by volunteers. Please bear a few things in mind while enjoying community rinks:
- Rinks are unsupervised. Residents should use at their own risk.
- Protective equipment including helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads are highly recommended.
- Physical abuse or horseplay is not permitted.
- Skaters and hockey players must be considerate of each other and divide up the ice for mutual enjoyment.
- Keep the area free of litter.
- Since rinks are maintained by volunteers, please bring a shovel and help keep it clear of snow.
- If the rink is closed for maintenance – please stay off the ice.
Get Involved with Local Ice Rinks
Flooding and use of hydrants and standpipes is done by Certified Ice Rink Captains. Only volunteers who have attended the City of Prince George Ice Making Workshop and possess current certification can operate this equipment. The City offers this free workshop each year in November. This year's workshop was held on November 20. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org for workshop details and registration information.
