Canopy Skating Rink is artificially cooled, allowing the skating surface to stay frozen earlier in the winter and remain later into the spring. The canopy above the ice surface is beautifully lit and animated with music.
The Snowboard Fun Park features a variety of rails, table tops, jumps and fun-boxes. Drop in ramps are located in the skateboard park.
An Olympic-sized Skating Rink is located adjacent to the Scotiabank Stage and is available for leisure skating and pick-up hockey games. The rink is maintained daily with a Zamboni for excellent ice conditions. Hockey nets and warm-up shacks are provided.
The Toboggan Run goes off a small berm behind the parkade. Bring your toboggan and glide into Festival Park.
1.2 km of skating trails connect the largest portion of Arctic Glacier Winter Park to The Plaza and Market areas and meander through The Forks site. All trails, rinks and the river are connected to the Plaza with rubber mats. Warming huts and many benches are strategically placed along the trail.
Festive lights enhance Arctic Glacier Winter Park by keeping the entire site colourfully lit and providing a warm, beautiful glow.
Iceland Skate Rentals is open daily from 9:30am to 11:00pm.
Skate rentals are available at Iceland Skate Rentals located in The Forks Market Tower Atrium, adjacent to the Mini Donuts Factory. Rates are $2.50 for children and seniors, and $4.50 for adults. Call 257.0288 or 955.8814 for group bookings.
