Outdoor Rinks

Outdoor Rinks

Throughout the winter months, Transportation & Parks 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 Experience Team at 780-538-0300 or 311,  or send an email to info@cityofgp.com.

The Neighbourhood Rink Program allows local residents an opportunity to erect and maintain a small skating rink in a park located near their home. These rinks are maintained by volunteers and used throughout the winter for local skating. We are now accepting applications for this program for the 2021-2022 season.  Please email completed forms to parks@cityofgp.com.  Deadline to apply is December 15.
