Outdoor Rinks

Kids skating on an outdoor rink

A favourite winter pastime in the City of Waterloo is outdoor skating. Volunteers use their time to maintaining many of them for our community. If you're interested in helping out (minimum two hour/week commitment) email or call 519-886-1177 x 27253.

The availability and quality of ice at these natural outdoor facilities is based largely on weather conditions and volunteer availability.  The City of Waterloo is unable to report on specific ice conditions or the current skating conditions. To reduce the work needed to recover from a thaw, users are encouraged to stay off soft, slushy or puddled rink surfaces.

Use our interactive map to find the rink nearest you. If there is not one nearby, contact our neighbourhood co-ordinator to start a rink in your neighbourhood.
