Castlegar’s Outdoor Community Ice Rinks are now open.
The skating rink opened Jan. 9 and the hockey rink will open Jan.10. Both rinks will remain open as long as the weather permits.
The rinks are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, weather permitting. They normally remain open until late January or early February as long as the temperatures stay at or below freezing. The rinks are lit up during the evening.
Two rinks are available, one for skating and one for hockey. They are free to use and are flooded as needed by city crews to smooth out the ice during low usage hours.
The rinks are located at the back side of Kinnaird Park, 2501 14th Avenue.
