How often are the outdoor skating rinks maintained and resurfaced?

The outdoor skating rinks are maintained and checked (weather permitting) from mid-December to early March. Flooding and the use of a tractor-mounted Zamboni are done on an as-needed basis depending on conditions.

Note: Snow crews are required to complete snow clearing at City-owned buildings on sidewalks (Schedule D) and parking lots (Schedule B6) before the maintenance of outdoor rinks.
