The Loop at Bannerman Park opened on Friday and remains open for the 2020-2021 season daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. when conditions are favourable.

The Loop will be closed every day from 1-2 p.m. and Friday to Monday 4-5 p.m. for ice resurfacing.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, new safety requirements are in effect this season:

  • The maximum capacity at The Loop is 40 persons per skating session.

  • A temporary fence is installed around the perimeter of The Loop, with accessible access at the entryway from the Bannerman Park parking lot along Bannerman Road.

  • Access to The Loop is on a first-come, first-served basis. We are not able to accommodate ‘bookings’ for skating sessions.

  • Skating sessions are 50 minutes each, starting at the top of the hour, with 10 minutes allotted for skater changeover.

  • Staff will signal the end of the skating session when the ice is to be vacated.

  • All patrons must respect public health measures including keeping 2 metres of physical distance from those that are not close contacts.
