Ice Rink Information

When operational, the ice rinks behind McLeod Hall are open:
Monday to Friday, 4:00-9:00pm
Saturday and Sunday, 12:00-5:00pm

Major snowfalls and temperature extremes (cold: -25 C including wind chill, warm: ice melting) will result in temporary rink closures.

The rink shack telephone number is 780-473-8993 and the answering machine is updated regularly on the rink status. Please call the rink shack before you come. 

A concession is available in the rink shack so you can get a snack or some hot chocolate to warm up on a cold day.

Please access the rinks by going to the back of the hall. There is no access through the hall.

McLeod Community League Rink Use Policy

McLeod maintains two ice rinks during the winter for community enjoyment. The rinks are open to the McLeod community league members, other community league members and the general public. As McLeod pays for the cost of the rink attendant and rink maintenance, we charge a nominal fee to non-community league members to assist in offsetting the operational costs.

Fee: $2.00 cash per visit payable to the rink attendant

Free: With the purchase of a McLeod Community League single/family membership (cash only) from the rink attendant, you will receive skate tags accordingly. Affix the skate tag to your skates and skating is free for the entire season.

If you are from another community league, please show your current membership and/or your skate tag(s).

If you do not have your community league membership with you, please pay the nominal $2.00 fee per skater. You will need to ensure you connect with your own community league to get skate tags to avoid paying the fee each time to access our rinks. The rink attendant does not have the discretion to waive the fee.

Receipts are available upon request from the rink attendant.

Access:
  1. The BIG rink is for shinny.
  2. The SMALL rink is primarily for public skating.
  3. The SMALL rink may be partitioned for dual use – shinny and public skating.
  4. There is no blanket schedule for either rink.
  5. Team practices are not permitted. Rinks are not available for rental.
  6. Usage of the rinks is determined on a night-to-night basis by the rink attendant.
