When operational, the ice rinks behind McLeod Hall are open:
Monday to Friday, 4:00-9:00pm
Saturday and Sunday, 12:00-5:00pm
Major snowfalls and temperature extremes (cold: -20 C including wind chill, warm: ice melting) will result in temporary rink closures. It is at the rink attendant's discretion to keep them open if the temperature is colder than -20 C providing ice conditions are safe.
The rink shack telephone number is 780-473-8993 and the answering machine is updated regularly on the rink status. Please call the rink shack before you come.
A concession is available in the rink shack so you can get a snack or some hot chocolate to warm up on a cold day.
Please access the rinks by going to the back of the hall. There is no access through the hall.
Failure to follow the rules will result in skaters being asked to leave the rink. Continued disregard will result in a complete ban. If you appear intoxicated, you will be asked to leave.
Please respect your facility. Skate at your own risk.
McLeod maintains two ice rinks during the winter for community enjoyment. The rinks are open to the McLeod Community League members, other community league members and the general public. As McLeod pays for the cost of the rink attendant and rink maintenance, we charge a nominal fee to non-community league members to assist in offsetting the operational costs.
Fee: $2.00 cash per visit payable to the rink attendant
Free: With the purchase of a McLeod Community League single/family membership (cash only) from the rink attendant, you will receive skate tags accordingly. Affix the skate tag to your skates and skating is free for the entire season.
If you are from another community league, please show your current membership and/or your skate tag(s).
If you do not have your community league membership with you, please pay the nominal $2.00 fee per skater. You will need to ensure you connect with your own community league to get skate tags to avoid paying the fee each time to access our rinks. The rink attendant does not have the discretion to waive the fee.
Receipts are available upon request from the rink attendant.
McLeod continues to need donations of skates (specifically adult mens and womens sizes 7 to 12) and helmets (all sizes) to loan to people interested in skating but have no equipment. These items will be kept on site and loaned out only for skating on the McLeod ice rinks. If you have skates or helmets that are in good shape, please contact or Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to drop them off.
McLeod Community League would like to acknowledge the land on which we are located is Treaty 6 territory, and is a traditional meeting ground, a travelling route and home for many Indigenous peoples such as the Cree, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Metis and other Indigenous peoples.
