Public Skating Programs

The City of North Bay offers a variety of public skating programs for participants of all ages.  Please note that all of the programs fall under the safety rules as listed on the Skating Safely page.  Facility staff will enforce these rules.  Failure to follow these rules may result in the offending person(s) being banned from participating in future municipal skating programs.

Due to tournaments and events, the weekly rotation of a program may be altered.  Please check the Monthly Schedules to confirm the programs for that month, or call the Pete Palangio or Memorial Gardens Arenas directly.

Anyone on the ice pad must be in skates - this is not optional.
