New Edinburgh Park skating rinks details

The New Edinburgh Park skating rinks are officially open thanks to our dedicated team of volunteer Hosers.

Our student Rink Attendants are now on site and will have more responsibilities this year. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding while they carry out those duties so that we can offer a safe environment to all.

Below are the City’s current restrictions for rinks as of Jan. 7, 2021:
▪️No sports or games are allowed (no hockey, ringette, etc.);
▪️Access to Field House is only permitted to use the washrooms, or for medical emergencies;
▪️Masks must be worn by spectators within 15 meters of the rink and are recommended for skaters; and
▪️Skaters must stay 2 metres away from other skaters unless they are from the same household.
Our dedicated team of volunteer Hosers will water the rink every night at 9pm.

Rink hours are:
Mon.-Fri. 4-9pm; Sat. 10am-9pm; Sun. 10am – 6pm
Happy skating!

Great New Edinburgh Limerick Contest!

Inspired by the terrific limericks Burgh residents submitted to the “Great New Edinburgh Limerick Contest” of 1979, the NEN team thought it would be fun to revive this poetic challenge for 2020!

The criteria remain the same: Limericks must be on New Edinburgh subjects. Rhyme and metre must be correct. All limericks must be original!

Winning entries will be published in the April 2020 edition of the New Edinburgh News. Local notoriety will be your prize!

Deadline for submissions is March 10, 2020. Send your limericks to
