The City of Kelowna has postponed the opening of the popular Stuart Park outdoor ice rink to Dec. 3 at 10 a.m., due to warm temperatures.

A still-image live cam that skaters can use to check the ice and crowd conditions before heading down to the rink is still set up and ready to use, according to a City of Kelowna media release.

Residents can check ice and crowd conditions on a still image live cam before heading to the rink. The live cam is updated every couple of minutes.

Skates are available to rent daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., however the rental shop will be closed on Dec. 25.

All skaters are asked to follow rink regulations and are encouraged to wear helmets.

The city also reminds skaters that if the outdoor rink is too busy, they can enjoy an indoor skate at Capital News Centre, Memorial Arena and Rutland Arena.
