Manor Park Rink
We have one of the city’s biggest ice surfaces! The boarded, night-lit hockey rink and pleasure puddle are built, supervised and maintained by the Manor Park Community Council.
The outdoor rinks operate – weather permitting – during January and February. There is no access to the skate change room this year due to renovations underway at the Manor Park community centre.
The rinks are open to skaters except when closed for flooding, other maintenance, deteriorating weather conditions (ie melt or severe cold), or in the event of an unforseen emergency. Please note that the city of Ottawa prohibits use of the rink between 11pm-6am. The rink will be supervised weekdays from 3 - 6 pm and on weekends from 11 am - 3 pm.
Rink closure will be posted on the Manor Park Community Council's facebook page, twitter and signs on-site.
Rink staff are identified by their red hockey jerseys or reflective safety vests! Ask them for rink information, assistance or first aid. This season, rink staff will do most of the maintenance on weekday mornings, allowing more ice time for everyone.
Visitors to the rink are asked to help us keep the ice in top shape by scraping the surface – or helping to clear following a snowfall. Shovels are always available on-site! Please return the shovels to the snowbanks for the next volunteer to use.
- Ensure that children under 12 years of age are supervised by a responsible person 14 years+;
- Wear a CSA-approved helmet to protect against head injuries;
- Keep pucks low to avoid injuries to people and damage to property, and
- Limit hockey on the oval and puddle to times when they are not in use by pleasure skaters.
All of the rink rules are posted rinkside.
Thank you to the city of Ottawa for its financial support through a rink grant.
Save the date!
