Each outdoor rink offers its own drop-in programs, that include figure skating, leisure skating, hockey and Women’s hockey. Each drop-in program has its own schedule that is divided into different group.

The Queensway Rink, The Prince of Wales Rink, and Riverdale Park East Rink will be closed for the 2016-2017 season. While there isn’t an official reason behind the Queensway Rink being closed, Riverdale Park East is undergoing a revitalization project that won’t be completed until spring or early summer 2017.

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.
