West End Rink — located on Denman Street in downtown Vancouver — is part of the West End Community Centre.
The ice rink is open from October to March with public skating programs and skate lessons for all ages and abilities. You can rent skates during public skate and lesson times.
In the spring we remove the ice for the Kidz Zone indoor playground (May and June). In July and August, the space is available for dry-floor activities such as ball hockey, in-line hockey, trade shows, and special events.
Fall registration opens on Friday, August 19
