Community Rink – Ekota

The Ekota rink is TEMPORARILY CLOSED!

UPDATE, JAN 19/2021: RINK IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED- Due to the safety hazard from extensive damage that has occurred to our rink fence, we are forced to close the Ekota rink.

We are in the process of having a fence contractor come to site to assess the damage and recommend repairs. We hope to be back up and running soon.
In the meantime, please stay off the ice. Thank you.
