The City of Brockville is seeking user feedback on the Rotary Park Outdoor Rink, a free, public skating facility in the city’s downtown.
“Changes were made to this year’s daily schedule to accommodate both free skating and shinny hockey in a half-and-half fashion, and was implemented to reduce enforcement issues that were popping up with the last year’s schedule,” reads a media release from the city.
The release explains that the reduction in enforcement allows the city to continue to keep the site free and open to everyone.
The current daily schedule is:
- Public skating from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Public (no hockey allowed)
- 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. pick up hockey (other users may still use the rink to skate, but should be aware of hockey play on the ice)
User feedback is sought on the current schedule so the city can see how things are working, and revise the schedule if needed to one that suits the greatest number of users (of both shinny hockey and free skate activities).
Members of the public are asked to take a few minutes to complete this rink user survey, and let the city know when you currently use the rink, how you use it, and if you have any comments or other feedback.
The survey will be open for two weeks and will close on January 31, 2024.
