KELOWNA - Crews have begun making ice at the popular Stuart Park outdoor rink in Kelowna with opening planned for next week.

City crews will be working afternoon shifts from 4 p.m. to midnite at Stuart Park over the next few days readying the rink for an opening Tuesday, Dec. 1, according to arenas supervisor Steve Fagan in a media release.

New this year is a fire pit located rinkside. Crews are making final adjustments on the gas-fired appliance before opening it to the public, Fagan says.

You can watch the crews in action with the still-image webcam on the City of Kelowna website. Don’t forget you can also use the webcam to check ice conditions once the rink is open.

The rink will open 10 a.m. the first day and from 6 a.m to 11 p.m. daily until sometime in late February, weather permitting.

Admission is free. Skate rentals will be available daily (except Christmas) from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
