The Loop at Bannerman Park opens Friday, Dec. 18, 2020 and remains open for the 2020-21 season daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. when conditions are favourable.

The Loop is closed every day from 1-2 p.m. and Friday to Monday 4-5 p.m. for ice resurfacing.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic new safety requirements are in effect this season:

  • Maximum capacity at The Loop is 40 persons per skating session.
  • A temporary fence is installed around the perimeter of The Loop, with accessible access at the entryway from the Bannerman Park parking lot along Bannerman Road.
  • Access to The Loop is on a first come, first served basis. We are not able to accommodate ‘bookings’ for skating sessions.
  • Skating sessions are 50 minutes each, starting at the top of the hour, with 10 minutes allotted for skater changeover.
  • Staff will signal the end of the skating session when the ice is to be vacated.
  • All patrons must respect public health measures including keeping 2 metres of physical distance from those that are not close contacts.

Call the Loop Line at 733-LOOP (5667) to check it’s open. The Loop Line is updated during closures resulting from poor ice conditions. Learn all details on The Loop webpage.
