September 7, 2021: Online registration for public skating sessions is not required. Skaters may drop in on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Drop-in sessions such as Stick & Puck, Public Hockey, Drop-in Figure Skating, and Sledge Hockey will still require advanced online registration.

Masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces for those 12 years and older, even if you are vaccinated. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided at the front desk.

Kitsilano Rink – located near West Broadway and Macdonald St – is part of the Kitsilano War Memorial Community Centre.

The ice rink is open from September to March with skating programs and skate lessons for all ages and abilities. You can rent skates during public skate and lesson times.

From April to August, we remove the ice for dry-floor activities such as ball hockey, in-line hockey, trade shows, and special events.
