Welcome Back! We've missed you!

To maintain the safety of patrons and staff and 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. Ice users are asked to self-screen before leaving for the arena. Upon entry to the facility, you will be asked similar screening questions.  Check before your Rec!

Arrival, Check-In, and Exiting:

  • There will be no access to the Arenas until the scheduled start time.  
  • Those arriving early must maintain physical distancing while lining up
  • Staff will let users in at their booking time.
  • Sanitize your hands upon entering the facility.
  • Observe signage provided, follow designated paths of entry and exit.
  • 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.
  • Enter the facility “dressed to participate” in your program. Please check with your specific organization for details. The current state of virus transmission places dressing room areas as potential high risk, and continued patience with this is appreciated.
  • Once participants have screened and admitted, re-entry is not permitted.
  • Only one guardian per minor aged participant is permitted, for capacity requirements. if a guardian arrives with an additional sibling, the sibling is allowed to enter with the guardian; once the participant is ready for their activity, the guardian and sibling are required to leave.
The City of Cambridge owns and operates seven indoor ice surfaces, and a number of volunteer-run outdoor ice rinks. All of our arenas are single pad facilities, except the Hespeler Memorial Arena which has two ice surfaces.

Outdoor ice rinks

These rinks are subject to availability based on the weather conditions and volunteer interest in supporting them. No artificial refrigeration is available. Outdoor rinks are to be determined.
