Outdoor Rinks

During the winter months the Town of Ajax offers residents the ability to participate in a Neighbourhood Ice Rink Program. The Town of Ajax will install boards to form an ice surface and provide a rebate for water consumption of up to $50. Residents participating in the program are asked to flood the rink periodically as well as clear the snow from the ice surface as required. The Neighbourhood Ice Rink program is a great way to get out and get active as an entire family.
