The ice has gone, but that’s no reason to stop skating at the Halifax Oval!

Head down to the Halifax Commons for some fun summer Skating at the Emera Oval.  Inline skates and 4-wheels are welcome to whizz around the concrete track, which, to share a bit of trivia, has a surface that is 3 times the size of an NHL hockey rink!

Don’t have your own skates? No sweat!  Skates, inline skates, bikes, scooters and plasma cars are available to borrow…for FREE, as long as you have a government issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. (There is a rumour the skates are from the old Sackville Wheelies!)   Same as in the winter, Halifax skaters need to stay safe. In summer, ALL users of the Emera Oval must wear a helmet. Helmets and protective gear are available to borrow at the site. Skating is 7 days a week.
