ice skating offers a great workout while 
being easy on the joints! Use our

ages, are required to wear a Canadian

helmet while attending City of Ottawa 
indoor public skate sessions.

We also offer skating programs, whether 
you are looking to learn to skate, or 
develop your skills such as figure 
skating, speed skating or power 
skating. 
All participants must wear 
CSA approved hockey helmets.
