Sorrento-Blind Bay Ice Rink open for skating

It's time to break out the blades for some outdoor skating in the South Shuswap!

The ice rink at the Sorrento Blind Bay Park is open to the public as of Friday, February 15, 2019 and should remain open for the Family Day weekend, barring any abrupt change in the weather.

A burst pipe at the Sorrento Blind Bay Park had delayed the opening of the outdoor rink, however, repairs to the pipe were made, allowing contractors to flood the ice surface. There has now been enough ice made for safe skating.

Frozen pipe delays opening of Sorrento Blind Bay Rink

A burst pipe at the Sorrento Blind Bay Park has delayed the opening of the outdoor rink, but skaters shouldn't have to wait too much longer before pulling on their blades.

Repairs to the pipe took place over the weekend and are now complete, so contractors can begin flooding the ice surface again to get the rink ready for skating. Contractors are working hard to get the rink into shape for skaters.
