Outdoor arena opening when weather conditions allow

Please note that Town of Smiths Falls’ staff are continuing to prepare the Gerry Lowe Memorial Rink to make it ready for when temperatures and weather conditions are suitable to make usable ice.

On average, three to five days with consistently low temperatures are needed to form hard ice, along with forecasted temperatures that will ensure the resources required to put the ice in are well used .

It is important to remember that the Gerry Lowe Memorial Rink is not refrigerated and therefore it is susceptible to the elements.
