LARKSPUR MULTIPURPOSE RINK HOURS

The main rink is now closed for the season. Increasing hours of daylight and position/angle of the sun in the late day have made it difficult to keep all sections of the ice frozen.

The snowbank rink is still open and will remain open as long as conditions allow.

Questions/concerns: contact@themeadowscommunity.ca or 587.520.0465

NOTE: We gently remind all residents that this is a community/volunteer-run rink, not operated by the City of Edmonton. It is exclusively operated by a dedicated (but small) corps of volunteers. If you would like to be part of this fantastic community asset, please contact us at contact@themeadowscommunity.ca.
