Thursday Public Freestyles in April

The city will hold pubic freestyles from 5:30 to 6:30 pm on Thursdays in April, except for the 30th.


Sunday Public Freestyle

There will be one last Sunday public freestyle on March 29 at 7:45 - 8:45 AM.


May Rink Closure

Jay Lively Ice Arena will close on April 27 and re-open about a month later. The rink normally closes in May for a week or two for ice maintenance. This closure will be longer than normal because several issues need to be addressed with the roof. Staff will investigate the cause of the rusting on the roof beams and have the roof repainted. Also, moisture-absorbant material will be applied to the roof to lower the humidity in the building and reduce the water drips that have caused bumps and holes in the ice during periods of humid weather.


Club Ice Change, Sunday March 8

On Sunday March 8, club ice will be:

12:30 - 1:45 pm, upper level
1:45 - 2:45 pm all levels
2:45 - 3:15 pm Learn to Skate


Thursday Afternoon Ice Ends July 31

July 31 is the last day we have Thursday afternoon ice. (This time belongs to high school hockey during their season.) We will have Thursday morning, 6:00 - 7:00 am, throughout the year. Also, if there is interest, we may add extra ice leading up to Ice in the Pines. Stay tuned.


Our New Zamboni is On the Ice


For the first time ever, Jay Lively Ice Arena has a brand new Zamboni. The previous Zam will be kept as a back up.


New Zamboni Approved!


Last night Council approved the purchase of a new $108,000 Zamboni to be delivered May or June. The current primary Zam will become the backup machine. If you wish to thank Council, you can email them all at:

Update April 10: The Zam will arrive by early June.
