In a sea of Sens jerseys Ottawa’s Rink of Dreams was officially opened last night at City Hall, just in time for the NHL All Star Weekend. Residents and visitors to the city will be able to enjoy free ice skating in Canada’s Capital from mid-November to March thanks to the refrigeration unit that keeps the ice in great skating condition up to 10 degrees C.
The Rink of Dreams hosts a heated change hut that’s open 7 days a week from 8am to 11pm. In the evening, skaters will glide the ice that’s three-quarters the size of an NHL rink and illuminated by colourful LED lights around the perimeter.
So grab your skates and lace up!
This is great!, I am 60 years old, I used to skate when I was young but because of my work and my busy time I don’t have a chance to skate anymore. The schedule allows me to exercise and keeps me active and it is for free!
Thank you, great idea.
