Outdoor Rinks & Toboggan Hills
Click button below for map of locations.
To help keep the rinks in good shape, please stay off of "closed" rinks altogether and "open" rinks when they are soft such as immediately after a flood or on warm afternoons when temperatures are above zero.
Rinks are snow cleared and flooded as resources permit on normal business days. Please stay off the ice while it is being flooded or cleared of snow. Please be courteous to other skaters and adjacent property owners. Recreational skaters have the right of way over hockey play. CSA-approved helmets must be worn when hockey sticks are in hand. The rinks are unsupervised and helmets are strongly recommended.

How to Get an Outdoor Rink in Your Community
Parks currently maintains nine outdoor rinks at various locations around Okotoks. Locations may change from year to year and there may be an opportunity to bring a temporary outdoor rink to your community.
Fire Services and Municipal Enforcement would like to remind residents that there is a real danger of falling through the ice on storm retention ponds and the Sheep River due to changing water levels. Water quality and changing weather conditions, ice quality and thickness can be significantly reduced. Storm pond water/ice contact is prohibited. It is dangerous to walk, play or skate on any open bodies of water.
