Throughout the winter months, Parks Operations maintains several outdoor rinks across Grande Prairie.  The rinks are opened to the public once sufficient ice surface is present to allow for safe skating.

Parks Operations conducts rink maintenance as needed to maintain a safe and useable playing surface.  For help with rink lighting or infrastructure concerns, please contact the Citizen Contact Centre at 780-538-0300 or
