The Outdoor Rink (ODR) next to the Ponoka Arena Complex (4410 54 Street) is now open for the season.
The rink opened on Nov. 28.
Throughout the season, town crews will continue to maintain the ODR by flooding the ice surface and clearing it of snow as needed.
The outdoor lights will operate from 5 to 10 p.m.
“Town crews have been working hard to get the ODR up and running for the community, and we are pleased to announce the facility is ready to open for the season,” said chief administrative officer Sandra Lund in a press release.
Indoor public skating and shinny hockey
Public skating and shinny hockey continue to be offered indoors at the arena on weekdays and weekends.
Winter outdoor recreation
Throughout the winter season more outdoor activities will become available, such as cross-country skiing at the Ponoka Golf Course and the skating trail at the Lions Centennial Park.
Updates on when these activities will open for the season will be posted to the town’s website and social media.
