City-run rinks

Last Updated: 2015 November 30

Outdoor skating rinks in Calgary are weather dependent and are typically open mid to late December through February, except for Olympic Plaza which is a refrigerated ice surface and is generally open from mid-November to mid-March.

City-maintained outdoor rinks are free to use and are flooded as needed during low usage hours. Please stay off the ice while it is being cleaned or cleared of snow. Hockey sticks are not permitted and helmets are strongly recommended.

The following outdoor skating rinks are maintained by The City: 

Volunteer-run rinks

There are over 34 outdoor rinks throughout Calgary that are maintained on a volunteer basis through the Adopt a Rink program. Visit Adopt a Rink for more information and rink locations.

Outdoor community skating rinks

There are numerous outdoor skating rinks that are in the communities and maintained by community volunteers. Visit the community website directly to see if they have an outdoor skating rink.
