Skating in the City
Constructed a few years ago for the Canada Games, the Emera Oval is a concrete oval located in the Halifax Commons. Built as a track for speed skating the city has invested money into it and now keeps it open year round. In the winter months the oval is flooded and a large refrigeration system helps create an ice rink that is open to the public with ice skates and helmets available to rent. In the summer months it makes a great place for rollerbladers and skateboarders. Nearby in the commons there is also a skateboard park open to everyone.

The Emera Oval is a large outdoor, artificially-refrigerated ice rink the size of 3 NHL hockey rinks, and it's open to the public 7 days per week. Also, skates and helmets are on loan for free (with government-issued ID).
