Fitzroy Outdoor Rink now open (January 4, 2022)

Good news – the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre outdoor rink is now open for skaters. Please note that with the little snow that we have received, the base is small, so a warm stretch of weather may put it out of commission, but we are open!

The rink this year is “unsupervised”. The Hall will not be open indoors, but the outdoor change benches can be used.

REMINDER: Recent City of Ottawa COVID direction is that no more than 25 people can use the ice at any one time and users should stay 2 metres apart.
