The Loop will not be open by Christmas Day

Making ice at The Loop using the Olympia ride-on ice machine

Please refrain from skating on The Loop until the opening is officially announced on our website and social media. We'll also update the The Loop Line at 733-LOOP (5667).

Parks staff began making ice at The Loop in Bannerman Park last week, however, the rain this past weekend caused delays in the ice making progress. 

When we began making ice we were hoping to have The Loop open before Christmas Day but unfortunately that will not happen this year. We are now working towards having The Loop ready before New Years Eve, however skating on it before it's ready is unsafe and damages the ice, and will delay the opening.
