One of the best ways to embrace the winter season is by lacing up your skates and hitting the outdoor rink. Whether you're a seasoned skater or a beginner, the outdoor rink is fun for everyone! Did you know that Sudbury is home to 54 different outdoor rinks? Not only do we have that many outdoor rinks, there is also so much more including frozen lakes, and skate paths throughout the city! We truly are a hockey town, it’s in our blood!
Every February everyone gets together for a big Pond Hockey tournament on our famous Ramsey Lake which is in the heart of the city. This tournament raises money towards a great local charity called Camp Quality. This camp was designed to send children who are battling cancer and blood disorders to camp to enjoy their summer!

The outdoor rink is a perfect setting for creating lasting memories with loved ones. Whether you're teaching your child to skate for the first time, enjoying a fun-filled pick up game with friends, the rink provides a social space that everyone can enjoy!
Skating is not only a delightful activity but also a fantastic workout. It engages multiple muscle groups, improves balance, and enhances cardiovascular fitness. The best part? It doesn't feel like exercise when you're having so much fun. So, say goodbye to the winter blues and hello to a healthier, happier you.
The outdoor rink is not just a frozen sheet of ice; it's a canvas for creating unforgettable winter memories. So, bundle up, grab your skates, and head to the nearest outdoor rink to experience the joy, beauty, and exhilaration of winter! Whether you're a seasoned pro or a first-time skater, the outdoor rink awaits with open arms, ready to whisk you away into a world of winter enchantment.
