Tim Bannister Memorial Rink - CLOSED

The Tim Bannister Memorial outdoor rink in the East End is maintained by Parks staff. The rink is kept accessible to hockey players and pleasure skaters of all ages by following one simple rule: share the ice! The rink is lit.

Mitford Pond skating surface - OPEN

Mitford Pond turns into a winter wonderland once the ponds freeze over. The pond can be used by hockey and pleasure skaters. There is lighting until 10pm and a firepit where you can bring in your own firewood to warm up with.
