Outdoor Community Rink

the Outdoor Community Rink is now open for the season!

The Outdoor Community Rink is open daily from daylight to 10pm, weather dependent, for the 2019/2020 season.

Located adjacent to the Fernie Aquatic Centre at 250 Pine Avenue, the Outdoor Community Rink is an NHL-size natural ice rink (200 by 85 feet). The rink opened in 2017, thanks to generous donations from the Calgary Flames Foundation, National Hockey League (NHL), Canadian Arena Products, the Fernie Lions Club and numerus community donors.

The Outdoor Community Rink is a natural ice surface and therefore conditions regularly fluctuate due to weather. City of Fernie staff and volunteers monitor the rink daily and work hard to manage varying conditions and keep the rink open for the community to safely enjoy. 

All closures are posted on site. When the rink is closed due to poor ice conditions, a closed sign is posted at the entrance, and a red flag is up. Closures for private bookings are posted on the white board on the warming area.

There is no cost for drop-in public skating. Please note there is no attendant on site and the public is asked to respect the schedule, posted rules for use, and all closures to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.

Private bookings can be made for a fee by calling 250-423-2245.
