Better weather ahead for the rink

Thanks to Larissa Mattwich for the wonderful painting of skaters at Sorauren Park.

The Sorauren Park Hosers have nursed the rink through a few weeks of up-and-down. Now the patient is looking to make a strong recovery thanks to the tender loving care and a more promising forecast for below-zero temperatures.

Rink conditions are posted more frequently on our SoraurenPark social media feeds, so check often. The rink is closed to protect the surface when temperatures rise above zero.

The new boards this year have done a much better job holding in the water during thaws. That said, the rink does need remedial work to get it back to the excellent conditions we experienced just before and after New Year’s.

Volunteer Hosers flood every night at 9 p.m. when temperatures are below zero and when it is not snowing hard.

Big thanks to our sponsors Scooter Girl Toys, Snap Fitness High Park and Chander Chaddah, whose support enabled the purchase of the new boards. To learn more about the rink and how you can get involved, visit our Ice Rink page.
