City of Moncton opens two new rinks for winter fun


MONCTON – The City of Moncton would like to inform residents of two new skating rinks that are available for public use at Centennial Park and Mapleton Park.

The new rink at Centennial Park is located next to Tennis Moncton near the main entrance to the park. The rink is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Regular public skating rules apply at this ice surface. No hockey is permitted on this ice surface. Those who wish to play hockey can do so at the Kaboom Rink.

The new rink at Mapleton Park is located behind the Mapleton Pavillion with access to a change room next to the rink. The rink is open from 11 a.m. to dusk. Regular public skating rules apply. No hockey is permitted on this ice surface.

“With the fluctuating weather we’ve been experiencing, it’s become increasingly difficult to maintain both the Centennial and Mapleton ponds for ice skating,” said Dan Hicks, Parks and Grounds Supervisor with the City of Moncton. “These two new rinks allow us to give residents additional options for their recreational activities.”

The two new ice surfaces at Centennial Park and Mapleton Park join the list of City operated outdoor rinks including City Hall, Victoria Park and the Kaboom Rink.

The City of Moncton highly recommends that all skaters wear a helmet during outdoor ice skating activities. For daily updates on ice and rink conditions, go to moncton.ca.

There is also public skating at the Redball Internet Centre and Crossman Community Centre – Kay Arena. CSA approved ice sports helmets are required for all participants who go skating at any indoor facility. For information and schedules visit redballinternetcentre.com or call 384-4423.
