Outdoor Skating & Ice Conditions

Updated February 6, 2020: Lacombe Lake will not open for public use this season as the ice remains unsafe to walk on. Ice fishing on the lake is not allowed at any time.

Select outdoor rinks are open; please see the list below for status updates and closures. 

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, play some shinny hockey with neighbours or teach your little ones the joy of skating!

The outdoor rink fun isn't just for winter! In the spring/summer, outdoor boarded rinks are available as off-leash areas when not in use for an organized sporting activity.
