Allendale Rink Update

Click to expand

We are opening Friday, December 11.

Please remember, the rink is for Allendale and Queen Alexandra residents following public health restrictions.

Rink Hours: 9 am – 10 pm.

Use of the rink is at your own risk.

If you observe public health violations please phone 311 (City Bylaw) or 1-833-415-9179 (AHS-Environmental Public Health)..

And on behalf of our Ice making volunteers we’d like to remind everyone that you can play a huge role in a fun and successful skating season if you follow these guidelines:
  • If there is snow on the ice – shovel it off. That means up and over the boards please.
  • Pick up after yourselves and use the garbage cans.
  • Maintain a respectful environment for all users (watch your language).
  • Watch out for each other and have fun.
Here’s a pro tip: Colder ice (especially the type found outdoors) is much harder, and will dull your skates very quickly. If you’re doing a lot of skating on the outdoor rink, it’s probably a good idea to get a sharpening before the season starts and again half way through.

Thanks.

PEOPLE WITH SEWING SKILLS NEEDED!

The communities of Allendale and Queen Alexandra are in strong need for more people to sew masks. The COVID-19 community assistance team would love to continue to provide masks to the community, and especially now that public areas are opening.  We are in strong need for more people to sew the masks. All supplies are provided by the community, along with patterns and anything else you might need.  Also, we are okay if you can even sew a few – whatever anyone can help with would be GREATLY appreciated. If you can help sew masks, please contact us at covid@qacl.ca
