Skate Trail - CLOSED TODAY

​​​Work to build the skate trail has started but warm conditions and lack of snow have delayed our season.

We create a natural ice trail from snow and water, so that means we need a good snow base, as well as consistent cold weather for at least a week to be able to build the trail.  We hope to be able to open in late January.  Please monitor this page, as well as our Facebook and Twitter channels, for all of the latest details.  

Once opened, regular operating hours will be:  Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Saturdays, Sundays, mornings. 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., afternoons,  2 to 4 p.m.

Ticket prices are $10 adults, $8 youth.

We look forward to welcoming you to the trail this Winter!​
