Public Skating Schedule

Helmet Policy

All skaters 12 years of age and under must wear a CSA approved helmet while participating in municipal public skating programs at the Bowles, Gray, LeBrun, and Devonshire arenas. Program skate monitors are also required to wear helmets and it is highly recommended all skaters, regardless of age, wear a CSA approved helmet.

Bicycle helmets do not provide the same protection as CSA approved helmets and will not be permitted on the ice.
