The City of Cambridge owns and operates seven indoor ice surfaces, and a number of volunteer-run outdoor ice rinks. 
Below is a list of our indoor ice rinks:
  • Hespeler Memorial Arena (Twin Pad) - 640 Ellis Rd W
  • Galt Arena Gardens - 98 Shade St
  • Preston Memorial Auditorium - 1458 Hamilton St
  • Karl Homuth Arena - 1407 Hamilton St
  • Dickson Centre - 30 Parkhill Rd W
  • Duncan McIntosh Centre - 200 Christopher Dr

The Province remains in Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen Ontario. 

To maintain the safety of patrons and staff, and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, City of Cambridge recreation facilities will look different upon re-opening. This includes the requirement for all users to book their time slot in advance. This will help us ensure that physical distancing is maintained and provide time for additional cleaning.

Arrival, Check-In, and Exiting:

  • There will be no access to the Arenas until 30 minutes before the scheduled start time.  
  • Physical distancing is required while lining up to enter
  • Hand sanitizer is available upon entering the facility.
  • Observe all signage provided, and do not gather in lobbies or corridors.
  • Spectators are permitted to a maximum of 100% of seating capacity and masks must be worn
  • Face coverings are required at all times with the exception of sports participants during play (e.g. on ice). Face coverings are required by all others not on the ice.
  • Where possible enter the facility “as best dressed to participate” in your program.
  • Changerooms are available but we ask that you expediate your time of use to allow for cleaning. 
  • Changerooms are available for full use and masking is still required within them.
  • Showers are available for use, but again please expediate your use to allow for cleaning.
  • Please check with your specific organization for details. The current state of virus transmission places dressing room areas as potential high risk, and masks are required in the changerooms.
  • Try to limit spectator attendance wherever possible.
  • Anyone found propping open exit doors to allow others in without screening will be subject to ice time cancellation.
  • Please respect any staff direction or guidance when at the building; it is for everyone's safety!
