KARS RINK USAGE (AS DIRECTED BY THE CITY OF OTTAWA)
UPDATE: The rink season is quickly coming to a close and we believe that this is the last weekend for fairly good ice. The long term forecast for Ottawa starting next week has above zero temperatures during the days and still fairly warm during the nights. The rink will disappear very quickly under these conditions. We will keep it going as long a possible but if you want a last skate, do so this weekend. At present, both rinks are open but both are bumpy. The rink hours will be 9am to 11pm, except for March 4th, as it will be flooded at 9pm. The other days, if there is flooding, we will do it early in the morning.
Any person who enters or uses the outdoor rink must maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from other persons using the outdoor rink (excluding members of the same household). Seasonal Recreation is in the process of updating signage for the rinks to ensure this information is prominently displayed for rink users.
Maximum of 25 skaters permitted on the main rink and 12 on the puddle rink at all times.
