Britannia Rink is part of the Britannia Community Centre — located just off Commercial Drive west of the Napier Greenway.
Register online for skating lessons and sessions
We're currently offering skating lessons only at Trout Lake and Killarney ice rinks. We're unable to offer beginner skating lessons (Child level 1 and Preschool level 1 and 2) at this time.
Registration for public skating sessions opens three days in advance, and closes 30 minutes before the session starts.
Skating sessions are 45 minutes or one-hour long. Skaters 7 years and younger must be accompanied on the ice by a parent or guardian over the age of 16 years.
Skate and helmet rentals are available (except for Stick and Puck sessions and drop-in figure skating). Sticks, pucks, and rings will not be available but you may bring your own. Other skate aids are limited.
We are working with our partners to renew and revitalize Britannia Community Services Centre and the larger Britannia site.
