Outdoor Skating

Skating

Red Deer offers 76 outdoor skating rinks for public use. Each site is maintained by the Parks section and includes boarded rinks for hockey/ ringette, snowbank rinks for leisure skating, as well as two pond skating locations.

Outdoor Rinks

Outdoor rink sites are maintained by the Parks section and include boarded rinks for hockey/ringette, as well as snowbank rinks for leisure skating. Two ponds are also available for skating (hockey sticks and pucks are not allowed on the ponds or ovals).

Neighbourhood Activity Centres (skate shacks) are operated by individual community associations. Skate shack booking information can be found on the Neighbourhood Activity Centres page.

Not all outdoor rinks have benches, so we recommend bringing your own chair if you are watching others skate, or if you need to sit and tie your skates.
