Outdoor Rinks

Outdoor ice rinks are located in parks around Kingston.

Check out the list and map of all the rinks around Kingston. They are updated throughout the day.

Community rinks

These are rinks on City property, that are managed and run by a group of volunteers. While the City does put up boards at these locations, it is up to the volunteers to maintain them. If you’re interested in building your own community rink please review the Outdoor Rink Policy and follow the instructions in the Outdoor Rink Manual.

When can outdoor rinks open?

Currently, all outdoor rinks are closed for the season. Their opening will depend on several factors:

  • We require a series of very cold days to build up the ice on outdoor rinks. Only the rink at Springer Market Square has a refrigerated cooling system that allows it to open earlier in the season.
  • Some outdoor rinks have access to water on-site, making it easier to prepare them for skaters. However, water needs to be trucked to other outdoor rinks, which changes the process of flooding them and making them skate ready.

The City of Kingston acknowledges that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, and thanks these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.

Today, the City is committed to working with Indigenous peoples and all residents to pursue a united path of reconciliation.
