Winter has been surprisingly kind to us so far this year, and many local residents have taken advantage of this by getting out onto one of Martensville’s outdoor rinks.
The community has two outdoor rinks; one full sized boarded rink located next to the Sports Centre and a small un-boarded rink in Kinsmen Park next to the Kyle Syrenne Skateboard Park.
“The full size rink had a full upgrade this year. The wooden board system has been replaced with an aluminum frame and puck board system. The chain link above the boards was also fully replaced,” Ted Schaeffer, City of Martensville Recreation Director, said.
The boarded rink is reserved for skating only on Wednesdays from 5:00-8:00pm and Saturday from 2:00-5:00pm. All other times are available for shinny. The small un-boarded rink is for skating only.
“Outdoor rinks provide a great benefit to the community. They provide a facility for skating and shinny that is readily available at no cost to the community. They are a great place for people, young and old, to socialize, be active and healthy and just have fun,” Schaeffer added.
