* The operation of the rinks is dependent on weather and safety conditions, so rinks may be closed without advance notice. Regular maintenance on rinks generally takes place between 7 AM and 10 AM, so skating may be temporarily interrupted during those times. With the warming weather, ice conditions can change rapidly. Please check the ice before skating.

Unfortunately, the CSRD was unable to resolve unforeseen challenges with the maintenance and operation of the outdoor ice rink at the Sorrento-Blind Bay Community Park for this season. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to ensuring a successful season of skating at this rink in Winter 2022.

COVID-19 protocols are in place for using the CSRD's rinks including:

  • Changing rooms and warming rooms at Parson and Farrell's Field will be closed;
  • No campfires are permitted;
  • There is to be no sharing of equipment such as hockey sticks or skate aids; 
  • Before use, stop and do a health check. If you are experiencing symptoms such as cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, you are not permitted to use the facility;
  • Organized adult groups or events will not be permitted without a valid park permit and COVID-19 Safety Plan. 

The CSRD asks patrons to respect the rules in order that these public amenities can be used and enjoyed this winter season. 

Information on rink operations will also be available on the CSRD's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
