Itinerary:
Let's get out for a nice skate at Victoria Park, which is a part of Edmonton's group of River Valley parks. The skating rink is very large and it's free! The Victoria Park Oval is one of the most scenic outdoor Olympic sized speed skating tracks in Canada.

The Oval is well protected from inclement weather by its location in the River Valley and the surrounding trees, and is home to the Edmonton Speed Skating Club (ESSC). The ESSC shares the use of the rink with the City to allow public skating outside of club hours. Don't worry though, public skating is for regular skating at your own pace. There may still be a few speed skaters on the track at this time, but it should be fairly quiet.


There is lots of parking, as well as washrooms and a heated Skate Change Area.

We will meet inside the Skate Change Area at 7:30 PM sharp! I will be wearing a blue EOC baseball cap.

Please note that rentals are not available at this skating rink, but skates may be rented from Totem Outdoor Outfitters. They are located at 7430 99 Street, and their number is 780-432- 1223.


In case of severe cold or snow this event may be cancelled, so please check your emails on the day of the event.
