SIX NATIONS — On February 14, 2020, the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) notified that the Six Nations community now has the opportunity to lace up some skates to Chiefswood Park to enjoy the freshly created ice rink.
Last week, Chiefswood Park, a sub-department of the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) took advantage of the cold weather and created an outdoor ice rink located at the top of the hill.
“We’re excited to be able to bring people together to enjoy a favourite winter pastime,” said Constance Jamieson Park Project Manager at Chiefswood Park.
The 2’ x 48 feet ice rink is open from now until the end of March-weather permitting and is available for community members who are learning to skate or wanting to enjoy the outdoors.
Children 7 and under are encouraged to be accompanied on ice with an adult, and the use of hockey sticks is not permitted. The ice rink is free to use and will be open during regular operating hours from 9 am to 5 pm.
People who use the ice rink are asked to wear helmets and bring their own skates. Chiefswood Park staff will also be selling hot chocolate for those looking to warm up after some time on the ice.
This is the first year Chiefswood Park has created an ice rink at their location, with the possibility to be built again in the future. For more information about Chiefswood Park please call 519-758-6444 or email Constance Jamieson Chiefswood Park Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
