The City of Orillia operates eight free outdoor skating rinks throughout the city that are open from December through March, depending upon the weather.

Development is subject to frost in the ground, cold weather and significant snowfall to form a base from which staff can flood.

Hockey games are prohibited on outdoor rinks when they are occupied by pleasure skaters. Skaters should wear helmets at all times.

Staff constantly monitor the weather conditions and when they are favourable, they try to flood the outdoor rinks. Keep checking back here for up-to-date conditions of the rinks.


Up-To-Date Conditions

Updated: Wednesday, March 20, 2017

Staff are working hard to prepare the outdoor rinks for your enjoyment. Please stay off the rinks if they are marked closed below to ensure severe damage is not done to the bases. Staff will continue to work on them daily and will provide updates when available. The Parks, Recreation and Culture Department maintains the rinks and questions can be addressed by contacting them at 705-329-7250.
