Outdoor Recreation Activities

Here's a list of the parks and outdoor recreation areas in Fort McMurray:

The exact location of these areas and all operational updates are available on the outdoor recreation map.  

OUTDOOR RINKS 

Boarded rinks are built and maintained by the municipality. Weather permitting, municipal boarded rinks operate from mid-December until spring. You may check if outdoor rinks are open or closed by using the outdoor recreation map.  

Note: Parks Services closes each rink daily for flooding and regular maintenance. After regular maintenance, the rinks will remain closed until frozen (approximately one to three hours, depending on weather).
