Kids on edge of outdoor ice rink

The City of Orillia operates seven free outdoor skating rinks throughout the city that are open from December through March, depending upon the weather.

Development is subject to frost in the ground, cold weather and significant snowfall to form a base from which staff can flood.

Hockey games are prohibited on outdoor rinks when they are occupied by pleasure skaters. Skaters should wear helmets at all times.

Staff constantly monitor the weather conditions and when they are favourable, they try to flood the outdoor rinks. Keep checking back here for up-to-date conditions of the rinks.
