The Stuart Park live camera updates frequently, allowing residents to view rink conditions before heading downtown.
Stuart Park features many events throughout the year and is a highly sought after venue for many events that take place in the city.
Free skating at the Stuart Park outdoor ice rink began on Friday, Nov. 30. The rink will be open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., weather & maintenance permitting, until late February. If the rink is closed for maintenance, signs are placed at the corners of the rink. If the rink is closed for the day a yellow sign will be placed in the middle the rink (toward the right hand side of the camera image). If the rink is open, skaters will be on the ice and there will be no signs present.
The public are asked to abide by the rink regulations as posted on surrounding signs and are encouraged to wear helmets.
Check the skating schedule for more information.
