Outdoor rinks are operated by local community volunteers through a service agreement with the City. Operators devote their time and energy to maintain local outdoor rinks on behalf of the community. 

Unless volunteers come forward as rink operators, these 5 outdoor rinks are in jeopardy and won’t be able to operate this winter!

Do you know an amateur hockey club needing more ice time?

Highschool students needing volunteer hours?

Or are you someone who just wants to give back to your community?

If so this is a great opportunity! Contact our Seasonal Recreation Office 613-580-2590 or SeasonalRecreation@ottawa.ca!
