Reservations for City ice rinks are required
Reserve your spot at www.hamilton.ca/recreation/drop-in-skate. Tickets become available 7 days in advance. Skaters with reservations are to arrive no later than 15 minutes after the scheduled session time or ticket will be forfeit due to the popularity of these skates.

Community ice rinks are operated in City parks by community volunteer committees. Rinks are operational as weather permits, and are open until 11 pm daily when lights are shut off.
There is no fee to use community rinks. No equipment, skate, helmet or stick rentals are available. All skating is done at the public’s own risk on all outdoor community ice rinks. With the exception of skating aids, no equipment (sticks and pucks) is permitted. Outdoor ice may have more imperfections than indoor ice, such as bumps, ruts, soft spots, etc. Wear your mask on and off the ice. The use of helmets is strongly recommended.
