When's the last time you laced up your skates? Wow! There's a great way to get the entire family outside on those sunny, refreshing winter days (cloudy days too). Visit an outdoor rink location near you!!
Once the cold weather hits the Capital City, staff will don the water hoses and brave the less than pleasant temperatures of a New Brunswick overnight in an attempt to transform a winter humpy - bumpy surface, to a vast shiny landscape much resembling a mirror or thick piece of glass.
Close your eyes for a second. Now put your skates on. Make sure you don't forget your hat, mitts and scarf! Imagine yourself gliding over glass with the fresh winter air filling your lungs. Feel the wispy winter breeze on your face and hear the sound of your metal blades ripping through the frozen surface below. Now what are you waiting for? Go Skate!!
For your enjoyment, there are 8 outdoor ice surfaces within City Limits.
