Season passes available per pass, or $3.00 drop in/per Adult/per skate.

We are pleased to offer a weekday skating opportunity for adults, seniors, and preschoolers. Held at the Joe Thornton Community Centre Monday through Friday, Leisure Skate provides a relaxed atmosphere for recreational skaters. School-age children are not permitted.

Each day, there is a 50-minute session for adults only and also a 50-minute for adults and preschoolers.

To participate in this program, just purchase your season pass at the Parks and Recreation Department office, located just inside the front entrance of the Joe Thornton Community Centre at 75 Cason Crossing (formerly 2 Third Avenue). If you can only skate periodically we now offer $3.00 daily passes.

Included in your Leisure Skate pass is a program called "Little Players". This is a great chance for little ones to hit the puck into the net in a quiet and unstructured format. Supervising adults provide all the guidance needed. Little Players will run each day M - F for 50 minutes.
