Outdoor Skating in Brantford

Outdoor Skating in Brantford

Brantford has a unique and wonderful recreational resource to offer our community. Each winter, until as late as 11:00 p.m. daily, several parks throughout the city offer the free outdoor skating due to the efforts of many committed volunteers.

To make this happen, the Parks & Recreation department prepares the rink sites as well as perform maintenance inspections weekly throughout the season. Then, Neighbourhood Association volunteers get to work flooding the rinks and shoveling when the snow flies.  Several neighbourhoods set up two ice surfaces: one for pleasure skating and the other for hockey.

If it’s too cold outside, or the weather just isn’t cooperating, there is public skating for a small fee or free adult-only skating and parent and tot skate on certain days at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre. As well, Harmony Square is open for free public skating weather permitting daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  Love skating but don't have any skates? Their free skate exchange program picks up again on January 4, 2019.  

Scattered throughout the city, these free outdoor ice rinks offer winter fun for the whole family! Have an hour to spare each week and enjoy the outdoors? Consider being a Flood Hero this winter and help with your neighbourhood rink by calling 519-756-1500. Check out the full list below:
