The ice surface will be located southwest of 106 Street and 112 Avenue (south of the Kayak Club) within the park and is exclusively dedicated for hockey users to enjoy the sport outside during the winter season.

 

Grande Prairie residents looking to play outdoor pond hockey will now have another place to play.

The city says construction is will soon start on a hockey-only outdoor rink in Muskoseepi Park.

The city will provide the labour and materials for the initial set up and Aquatera will flood the surface. 

Ongoing rink maintenance will be the responsibility of community users. 

In a statement, the City says “this new community project maximizes the existing space within Muskoseepi Park to foster recreation and wellness opportunities year-round.”

Construction on the new rink is set to start by the end of the week.
