Outdoor Skating & Ice Conditions

All Outdoor Skating Areas Closed

All outdoor skating rinks and surfaces are now closed for the season. Thanks to everyone who joined us this winter for skating!

About Outdoor Rinks

The City of St. Albert is proud to offer residents a variety of outdoor boarded rinks and social ice surfaces throughout the city. They’re wonderful locations nestled in our parks and are perfect for any type of skater. Practice your figure skating or teach your little ones the joy of skating!

When not in use for the winter season, some of the outdoor boarded rinks are open for off-leash play with your dog. Find locations

Before you visit an outdoor facility, please know:

  • The boarded rinks and social ice surfaces have maximum capacities of total people allowed to skate at each location dependant on the size of the ice surface. Please follow all posted capacity limits while enjoying the ice surfaces this winter.
  • All ice surfaces will be unsupervised (like playgrounds). Signage will be on-site about how to play safe. Ice surfaces will be maintained at the current, rotational service levels.
  • No hockey, ringette or shinny
  • Sticks and pucks are allowed for skills practice.
  • Ensure you are at least two metres physical distance from others. If it’s too crowded to keep two metres distance, please come back at another time.
  • Information below has washroom information available for rink locations.
  • There is no ice fishing allowed on Lacombe Lake.
