  • The oval has tremendously improved over the last year. With the addition of the permanent rental facility and warming building, it is an amazing place to skate, even in cold conditions. The evening skates can get a bit too busy, but it clears out by the end. In the winter, they have plenty of selection in skates and helmets, and as for summer, they do offer a few bikes, but they are very heavy, so the main attraction is inline skates. All equipment can be rented for free with photo ID, and helmets are mandatory for years 12 and under.
  • Every time I skate somewhere else I remember how completely spoiled we are in Halifax with this gigantic free outdoor skating rink. Ice quality is excellent under reasonable skating conditions, there's loads of room, and people have the good sense to stick to the outside if they are slow skaters. They also have various props for learners to use. Generally a good mix of beginners and somewhat to very skilled skaters. Not to be missed.
  • It is totally free to come here, get skates, skate for a while, warm up in the warm room, and be social. It's also OK to skate here late at night. Bring your own skates though.
  • I love the workers here, all of them are so kind and nice.
  • Would be better if you could sign a waiver not to wear a helmet. It doesn't make any sense when winter skating helmets Are not mandatory. Your music selection is questionable it's as if your catering for a certain crowd. If you played better music and advertised more it would be a lot more people on the Oval in the spring and summer months are not mandatory
