Outdoor Ice Rinks and Skating

City of Brantford neighbourhood ice rinks are run with the help of valued volunteers. To ensure COVID-19 measures are being followed and the ice is in a safe condition for skating, City staff will monitor and inspect community rinks daily. Hours of operation for neighbourhood ice rinks are 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, weather permitting.

Find a community rink near you and check if it is currently opened or closed (based on weather and skating conditions) below. 

Residents are reminded to STAY OFF frozen stormwater ponds. Water levels and flows change rapidly making skating and other activities on these water bodies extremely dangerous. Run-off of road salts into these ponds also makes the ice thinner and weaker. Learn more at brantford.ca/Stormwater.
