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
Calling all Rink Volunteers!
We want to make sure the rink continues to be one of the best outdoor skating surfaces in the city! With great ice comes great responsibility, we are looking to mobilize a group of dedicated volunteers to help our wonderful rink attendants ensure the ice is always in the best condition possible.
Depending on the weather we will be flooding the rink in the morning, or in the evenings. Scraping the ice and clearing the snow is no easy task, and as they say many hands make light work. It is never too late to join the Manor Park rink volunteer team!
Having a large roster of voluteers will go a long way in helping to maintain the ice. If you would like to be added to the volunteer roster then please contact Josh at email@example.com
All rink volunteers will be required to provide a Police Records Check. Volunteers getting a Police Records Check (Level 3: Vulnerable Sector), should use this letter to have the associated fees waived. Apply online.
Mondays: 3 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Wednesdays: 3 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Fridays: 3 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Saturdays & Sundays: 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
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.
Rink closure will be posted on the Manor Park Community Council's facebook page, twitter and signs on-site.
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.
