Rosemont Rinks in Confederate Park - 2807 10 Street NW

You will find two rinks here perfect for all ages. The Calgary Herald named Rosemont Rinks as the Best Outdoor Skating Rink in 2001. The rinks are well-maintained and family-friendly.

Olympic Plaza - 228 8 Avenue SE

Prairie Winds Park - 223 Castleridge Boulevard NE

This is a very popular rink and provides plenty of great skating room. If you bring your own skates, you can skate for free.

Lake Louise - 111 Lake Louise Drive, Lake Louise

Prince's Island Lagoon - 4 Street & 1 Avenue SW

This ring was created in 2011 by a robber Aqua Dam. The dam holds the water in place and keeps the river from buckling the rink. Free skating is available daily from 10am to 9pm.
