KELOWNA - Skating season is coming to an end at Stuart Park’s outdoor rink. Warm temperatures mean an increase in daytime rink closures with the possibility of the outdoor rink fully closing within the next week.
Until then, the rink will be open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., ice maintenance and weather permitting.
“The rink will re-open in the evenings when the surface has frozen again.
There is no set closure date for the rink as we’re trying to keep it open for as long as possible,” said Steve Fagan, Arenas and Stadiums Supervisor. “We recommend checking rink conditions before heading out by viewing the still-image web cam on the City’s website. If the rink is closed, a yellow caution sign will be visible.”
Skate rentals are available daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. until the end of skating season.
The public is required to abide by the rink regulations as posted on surrounding signs and encouraged to wear helmets.
The adjacent fire pit will be turned off when the rink closes for the season.
