About Outdoor Rinks

Red Deer is proud to offer 77 outdoor ice surfaces for public use. Sites are maintained by the Parks section and include boarded rinks for hockey/ringette, as well as snowbank rinks for leisure skating. Three ponds are also available for skating (hockey sticks and pucks are not allowed on the ponds or ovals).

Neighbourhood Activity Centres (indoor skate shacks) are operated by individual community associations. Skate shack booking information is found on the Neighbourhood Activity Centres page. Note: Neighbourhood Activity Centres are currently closed as part of the provincial government’s COVID restrictions.

COVID-19 Restrictions

Provincial mandatory health restrictions are in effect for sport and physical activities. Please read and adhere to these restrictions when using outdoor rinks:

  • Ice surfaces are limited to 10 people each. Bower Ponds, Anders on the Lake and Westlake do not have capacity limitations as long as physical distancing between household groups can be maintained.
  • Only visit the outdoor rink with people who live in your house.
  • Maintain a 2 metre distance between you and anyone who does not live in your household. This means gameplay (hockey, shinny, sticks-in-the-middle, pick-up games) is only allowed with the people who live in your house.
  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell.
  • Spectators in and around outdoor ice surfaces are reminded to adhere to physical distancing rules. Social gatherings at outdoor ice surfaces are not allowed.
  • As always, alcohol is not permitted at any recreation sites, including outdoor rinks.

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.
