Time to consider building a community rink
The city of St. Catharines is looking for local volunteer groups to help set up outdoor skating in their communities.
Applications are open for volunteer groups to participate in the city’s Community Outdoor Ice Rink Pilot Project.
The project allows groups to build, operate and maintain outdoor ice rinks in city-owned parks.
The city says the groups can apply to use any park they wish, provided it offers a reasonably flat surface, sufficient lighting, access for emergency vehicles and adequate parking where volunteer groups can build, operate and maintain outdoor ice rinks.
The city will also provide signage and training sessions on how to build outdoor ice rinks.
Grants up to $500 per rink are available to help cover watering costs.
Applications are due by Oct. 9 at 4 p.m.
