Lace ‘em up and sharpen your blades - Kelowna’s premier outdoor rink is set to soon open for the season.

As daytime highs begin to mostly sit in the negatives, the Stuart Park rink will open on Dec. 1 at 10 a.m.

For the remainder of the season, it will be open from 6 a.m.-11 p.m., with maintenance on Mondays from 6 a.m.-8 a.m.

Arenas and Stadiums Supervisor Steve Fagan said that crews are already working on preparing the ice surface.

Like in the past, a webcam will be available at for the public to check on ice conditions and weather changes at the rink. The camera is already live, so check it out to keep up-to-date with the ice-making process.

Skates can be rented on ice from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. every day, except for Christmas. Equipment rentals are cash only.
