The city website says the rink will open on Dec.5, but the people at the community centre say it won't open until a week from today, at the earliest. There are construction signs on the fence. The rink has new boards installed, but two workers are hammering and screwing a new swing gate in place, between the hockey rink and the pleasure-skating rink.

There is nowhere a sign explaining the delay in opening or giving an alternative opening date.

The rink opened for the season.

From rink user Raf Lewis:

2pm. The shinny pad was swarmed with little kids, the pleasure skating pad not so much. There were quite a few rink guards (I think about 3 or 4) taking turns monitoring the pleasure skating pad.
