Winter is an exciting time of year as it gives families the opportunity to take advantage of outdoor skating rinks and skating trails. While there are inherent risks in having an outdoor skating rink or skating trail, these risks can be safely managed by effectively training staff, and where applicable, your volunteers or community groups on how to safely manage this wonderful outdoor activity. Overall, outdoor rinks and skating trails need to be managed in the same manner as any other municipal operation whether it is being maintained by staff, volunteers or a community group.
