Outdoor ice skating is a growing popular activity in the park. Parks Canada does NOT monitor natural ice surfaces for safety.

Many environmental factors affect the thickness of the ice. If you choose to skate on natural ice, you do so at your own risk. The recommended ice thickness is at least 15 cm for walking or skating.

  • Please be sure to arm yourself with safety information before heading out
  • If you are not sure if the ice is thick enough, stay off it
  • Never skate alone
  • Don't skate in the dark

Other skating options:

  • Alma rink is an outdoor skating rink, managed by the Alma Recreation Council, located in the Village of Alma at the corner of Foster Road and Main Street.
