Skating is returning to Kelowna’s Stuart Park on Friday, Dec. 1.

The annual outside skating rink is set to open to the public at 11:30 a.m. and run until late February.

“The arrival of cooler weather ushers in the return of a beloved winter activity at Stuart Park,” says Steve Hebden, Recreation Facility Operations Supervisor. “Crews are working on getting the ice prepared, and we can’t wait to welcome our community back to the rink over the coming weeks.”

Like in years past, a live camera of the rink is available on the City of Kelowna website to residents can check rink conditions or if the rink is closed due to a weather-related maintenance.

The rink will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily expect for Mondays, where it opens at 8 a.m. Skates will also be available for rent from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. everyday except for Christmas Day. Rentals are cash only.
