Avalon Community Rink is Now Open!

Grab your skates and head on out, because skating season is here!

Public skating is scheduled, unless the temperature is above 0 or below -25 with the windchill:

Mondays & Wednesdays: 6-8 pm

Sundays: 1-3 pm

The boot room will be open during these times so there is a warm place to put on your skates. Have a new or beginner skater in your family? No problem! During public skate times skate aids are available.

Please be respectful of other skaters and the ice! The ACA assumes no responsibility/liability for lost items, accidents or other incidents that occur on the rink.

Volunteers are needed to assist with supervising the public skating.  Please email [email protected] if you are able to help out so we can continue to keep the boot room open. And we always appreciate it if everyone can assist with shoveling the rink of snow and ice to keep the rink clean: when a couple people shovel it goes quickly.

Looking forward to seeing you all out on the ice!

2nd Annual Avalon Skate & Slide

The Avalon Community Association will be hosting their second annual skate and slide on Sunday, December 9. Come on by the John Lake Park & Rink between 1 and 4:30pm to enjoy an afternoon of skating and sledding with your neighbours as well as your community association members.

There will be TimBits, hot chocolate and coffee to keep you warm and energized! The boot room will be open for warming up and changing into your skates, and skate aids will be available to help the littlest ones on the ice.

Our sponsors again this year are Smitty’s (Market Mall location), who are providing the beverages, and the ACA’s very own Scott Schierling (ReMax Saskatoon), who is donating TimBits.

This is a weather-permitting event, so be sure to check out our Facebook page on the day of the event in case of cancellation.
