Update – Rink status

UPDATE – MARCH 7, 2022 – the ORD is now closed for the season.

UPDATE – FEB 7, 2022 – ODR is now open.

Original Feb 2, 2022 message is below.

Due to the warm weather and to preserve the ice and prolong the skating season, the outdoor rink is CLOSED. Please refrain from use as this causes damage to the ice. Note the lights have been turned off.
Also, with the forecast for upcoming snow, the ODR will remain closed until accumulation is removed. Stay tuned for further “Call for Volunteers” to assist w/ snow removal, depending on amount of snow received.

Outdoor rink: Call for volunteers

Outdoor rink: Call for volunteers

The outdoor rink (ODR) season is upon us! This year we need 3 adult volunteers as well as youth workers to fill in the gaps left by those not returning. The adult volunteers and youth workers are responsible for rink maintenance. A maintenance crew consists of two youth workers and one adult volunteer.

Maintenance is done Sunday to Friday, 9-10 pm, during the ODR season, weather permitting. The season typically lasts 8 – 10 weeks.

Maintenance efforts involve scraping the ice surface to remove all snow, followed by flooding. Youth workers are responsible for scraping, while the adult volunteer runs the snow blowers and flood hose.

Training is provided for those who are new to rink maintenance.


Interested adult volunteers and youth workers should contact
