Stay safe around melting ice

As winter nears an end and the deep-freeze lifts, our community members might be looking for a few last opportunities to skate with their friends and family. If you’re looking for a safe skating destination, consider our community’s outdoor rink located on the north side of the BCL Hall.

EPCOR awarded our league with a Community Rink Grant to help maintain the rink this winter as part of their annual education campaign reminding Edmontonians about the dangers of recreating on stormwater facilities. Skating rinks may look like still ponds, but they are actually working facilities with water moving beneath the surface. This makes the ice dangerously unpredictable.

Let’s work together to remind friends, family and neighbours to choose a safe location to enjoy the outdoors! #skatesafeyeg
