Outdoor Ice Rinks - Closed and re-opening late 2022

Thank you to the volunteers who maintained this past winter's outdoor rinks!

The City of Cambridge has volunteer-run outdoor natural ice rinks, offering great activities for the community to enjoy. These rinks are subject to availability based on the weather conditions and volunteer interest in supporting them. No artificial refrigeration is available. 

Rinks that are open and operating can be looked up here.

Rink Rules

Helmets are recommended on the ice at all times.

Users must be off the ice no later than 10:00pm.

Refrain from contact in any play.

Please stay off the rinks when they are being flooded, or when they are soft and wet to prevent any damage that may then delay them from re-opening.

Rink Use Schedule

Time of use may vary slightly by rink location. Can-Amera Rink and Riverside Rink at Kinsmen Stadium each have two separate ice surfaces. Each is signed; one is for stick and puck play only and the other for recreational skating only.
