The Meewasin Rink is typically open from Thursday to Sunday, 1pm to 8pm, unless weather conditions reach a low of -30 with or without wind-chill.

The Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink @Nutrien Plaza opened for the season on December 16th, 2020! Located in Kiwanis Memorial Park North beside the Delta Bessborough Hotel, this beautiful outdoor rink is open to pre-registered skaters this season.

Things look a little different this year! Additional precautions are in place in accordance with Government of Saskatchewan guidelines to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff.

Things you should know:

  • Access to the skating rink area is restricted to a maximum of 30 individuals including Meewasin staff.
  • Pre-registration is required to book a one-hour window (45-minute skate time) between the hours of 1:00pm and 8:00 pm Wednesday through Sunday to ensure the maximum capacity is not surpassed.
  • Skate times start promptly on the hour and you will have 45 minutes of skate time before we need to clear the ice for the next group.
  • Please be on time! Registrant’s space(s) may be cancelled if they do not arrive within 10 minutes of the scheduled skate time.
  • Bring your own skates and dress for the weather! Access to the skating chalet beside the rink is restricted to Meewasin employees only. For safety reasons we are unable store personal belongings or lend skates to the public this year.
  • The outside fire pit will run regularly for warm-up opportunities. Additional benches will be installed along the ice surface at acceptable physically distanced intervals.
  • Non-medical masks and physical distancing (from people not in the same group) will be mandatory for all visitors to the skating rink.
  • The Government of Saskatchewan is currently limiting outdoor group gatherings to a maximum of 10 people. We cannot accept group bookings that exceed this size, any bookings that exceed this limit will be cancelled.
  • Please note that the Meewasin Skating Rink is closed for flooding from 10am-12pm Wednesday to Sunday. You are welcome to skate outside of these hours even out of our registration hours, but please clear the ice surface for this time.

Register now! We will be releasing new skate times on Mondays. If bookings are full please check back to register for a later date.

Winter is cool, but no shows aren’t! If you have booked a skate time and can no longer attend, please cancel your booking on Eventbrite or phone the rink at 306-229-8827 so we can make your space available to another skater.

Thanks for being kind to our staff, they are working hard to give everyone an opportunity to skate in adherence with the Government of Saskatchewan’s public health orders.

To celebrate the opening of the rink, we created a video of the lighting of the twinkle lights! Check it out on our social media channels.
