Rink diary from other years


Dec.9, 2019

This rink appeared on the city list for the first time on Sunday Dec.8. Our visit was on a rainy day when the ice had water on it. A city staff person was laying rubber flooring in the washroom. He was cheerful despite the rain and said that ice was fine, "where are your skates?"

There are cranes and construction fences everywhere, and the adjacent Hwy 401 is a dull roar.
