Public skating and skating lessons are cancelled for the remainder of the 2020-21 winter season. With stay-at-home orders and our small rink size, we intend to keep the number of community members and staff to a minimum in the short-term.

We hope to have you back for a safe and fun season next winter.

The Evergreen Brick Works outdoor skating rink weaves through snow-covered gardens under exposed beams from the roof of the old brick factory. Bring your own skates or rent a pair of ours! Skating is free, and skate rentals are available for $7.50 a pair. 

You must be wearing skates on the ice. Shoes are not permitted. Hockey sticks, pucks, and strollers are not permitted on the ice. Please note pets are not allowed in Koerner Gardens, where the skating rink is located.

Please note that skate assists are not permitted during public skating; if accommodations are necessary please contact

A CSA-approved helmet is mandatory for children under 6 years old. Free helmet rentals are available at the rink for skaters of all ages.
