Kilreen Rink Open for the Season!

We're delighted to announce that our community skating rink in Kilreen Park is finally open for the winter season. Due to the mild December weather, the rink took longer to get started this year. We're grateful to the many community volunteers who patiently helped to prepare the base and flood the surface over the past weeks, keeping the faith through those warmer days. Now that the January deep freeze has finally arrived, we hope to see all our neighbours out on the rink!

Ice conditions will be posted on-line by our rink coordinator. Just go to and look under "Kilreen" to check conditions. 

An additional thanks to Appleseed Snowblowing Service for their help with the base ice, along with our community volunteers! Now get out there and skate!
