Recreation Ice Rentals

Interested in booking some ice time? Regular season ice (September to March) is primarily scheduled for our local minor sport organizations, leaving ice available during the early mornings, weekdays and late evenings. Short term bookings are available for individuals. All bookings need to meet our insurance requirements, which can be acquired through the City of St. Albert's insurance program or through your own broker.

Looking for ice for the spring or summer? St. Albert does maintain ice over the spring and summer depending on community needs. If your group or organization would like ice in the off season, please submit your request to a facilities coordinator by November 1st of the previous year.

Open Ice

To check availability of ice surfaces, an up to date schedule for each arena facility is viewable through our online calendar. Please note that space is not confirmed available until within our fourteen (14) day cancellation period, and future dates may need further confirmation through a Facility Coordinator.
