Grab your skates and a nice warm pair of gloves because Swift Current's outdoor skating rinks are open for another winter.

After a busy past couple of weeks preparing the ice surfaces, Swift Current's five outdoor rinks opened on Dec. 13 for a season that typically runs until the end of February.

“The Community Services staff has worked very hard throughout the past couple of weeks to prepare the ice for activity,” said Andy Toth, Parks Manager.  “The five outdoor rinks are going to be in great shape for public use as a result of our staffs’ commitment.”

The rinks are free of charge to all users during regular scheduled times, but are also available for booking outside of these times at $35.75 per hour.

All locations have two ice surfaces, allowing for both public skating and hockey games to be occur at the same time.

The outdoor rinks operate on a seater permitting basis, and are subject to closure as a result of extreme cold or above freezing temperatures.
