The Queensway Rink, The Prince of Wales Rink, and Riverdale Park East Rink will be closed for the 2016-2017 season.

On Nov. 23, the parks and recreation department announced that, due to a problem with the condition of the slab, the Prince of Wales Rink will be closed for the 2016-2017 season.
The McCown District Park outdoor rinks’ opening will be delayed due to construction. There’s no timetable on when it will be open.
