Outdoor Ice Rinks 2017

There are two winter outdoor ice rinks available for free public use:

  • Sk8ter Park - Odessa Fairgrounds
  • Lakeview Park - 4565 Bath Road, Amherstview

Please note these rinks are not maintained by the Township but, rather, are run and maintained by dedicated community volunteers. Their efforts to build the required base ice and provide favourable ice conditions are totally dependent on the weather. Long cold winters with consistent temperatures below zero are no longer the norm, and, as such, do not provide  ideal conditions for maintaining outdoor rinks.

Our dedicated volunteers put forward their best efforts but weather conditions are outside their control. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.

If you are planning to skate outdoors, please  check the ice status first (open/closed).

(Disclaimer: Information updates on ice status are provided to the Township by the volunteers. Please note status is not updated on weekends.)
