Safety information for the 2020-21 season at the Corkery Rink

We know that you have many questions about the 2020-2021 season, and we hope to provide some clarity on these issues.
With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and fluid nature of the Province of Ontario and Ottawa Public Health’s response to it, we can anticipate that processes we put in place now may change based on the most up-to-date recommendations.
We appreciate your flexibility, and we know that the joint effort between the Seasonal Recreation team and our amazing rink operators will enable us to provide a safe and rewarding outdoor skating experience at the Corkery Rink.

Is there a maximum capacity for the rink, based on physical distancing?
