Lace up: Vernon’s out of doors rink skates into season


An outdoor leisure favorite has returned for another season of winter fun.

The staff of Recreation Services is pleased to announce that the Centennial Outdoor Rink has officially opened. There’s a public skating session tonight at 7 p.m.

The outdoor ice rink provides citizens of all ages with free public ice skating and shinny opportunities and allows them to spend time outdoors with family and friends.

Users are reminded that helmets are mandatory for skaters under the age of 10 and for shinny players, and helmets are highly recommended for all skaters. All Shinny players under the age of 18 must also have a parent or legal guardian who consents to the waiver, either online or at the Vernon Recreation Center front desk.

Although the outdoor ice rink is a cooling system, its operation is still very weather dependent and may be closed due to weather conditions and holiday schedules. The public is encouraged to check Greater Vernon Recreation Services’ social media channels on Facebook or Twitter or the website for daily updates before visiting the rink.
