CHPH Adopt a Rink

CHPH is pleased to work with the City on providing a skating rink during the winter months (December to March). 

Come enjoy the outdoor rink in our community, from dawn until dusk daily (until the warm weather is here to stay!). Our pleasure skating rink is for the use of all residents, free of charge.

A few things to note:

  • Please enter and exit rink where the berm is lowest, by the red bench, and take care to avoid skating near the edges where the ice can be bumpier.
  • The area around the perimeter of the rink is icy and slippery. Please take care when walking around the rink.
  • Helmets are recommended for all ages for safety.
  • There are no garbage cans at the site, so please take your rubbish and empties with you when you go.
  • The shovels on site are to help you clear the ice of snow and shavings as needed. Please leave them next to the bench after use.
  • Most of all, HAVE FUN!

The outdoor rink was made possible by a team of volunteers and the City of Calgary Adopt a Rink program.

Support the rink and other community initiatives by buying or renewing a CHPH membership!

If you would like to volunteer with the ice rink, please email

If you would like to see a permanent rink and gathering space, we need your help! Join our board and fill a position with sponsorship, casino or fundraising. We also need a recreation director so that we run programming that will help us qualify for a casino.

A Note about the former Community Hockey Rink 

We get many emails and questions about the rink behind the old community centre building on Patterson Boulevard.

In 2004 following declining membership, building use and lack of volunteers, the Community Association made the difficult decision to release the lease on the property back to the City of Calgary. It is currently leased by the Alberta Badminton Association who have not maintained the ice rink during this time as their intention, as we understand it, was to re-purpose the site for other use.

This rink is not available for use by the community as a skating/hockey rink, nor is it open for public use during the summer.
