Outdoor skating rink at Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Ice Skating Rink Comes to Niagara-on-the-Lake

The New Outdoor Skating Rink in Niagara-on-the-Lake is now Open!

Vintage Hotels, in partnership with Parks Canada, is proud to announce the grand opening of our community’s new, outdoor skating rink at Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake!

Visitors can go skating and then tour historic Fort George for an exciting and informative day-trip. Look out for actors in period costume showing up at the rink throughout the winter. There will be special events at the skating rink throughout the season.

The new facilities feature a 7,200-square foot skating surface, skate rentals, and tasty concessions. A walkway leads to the adjacent agora and serves as a place for skaters to warm up and purchase equipment and refreshments.

The rink is lighted so visitors can skate in the evenings and ice chillers are installed to ensure ideal skating conditions all winter.

Skating is free, but there is a cost for skate rentals and any food or drinks purchased.

The rink is only open until March so don’t delay in visiting it!
