Public Skating

COVID-19 Update – March 21, 2022

Arenas are operating at full capacity. Carmichael Arena remains in use as a vaccination clinic. 

Masks are no longer required in leisure facilities. While masks are optional, individuals should assess their situation to determine what is best for them.

While the City no longer requires proof of vaccination, some permit holders or groups with leases may choose to maintain these requirements, and will be responsible for checking proof of vaccination for their participants. Users should check with their specific group to confirm.

Please read the Arenas User Guidelines below for details.

Public Skating

The City of Greater Sudbury provides public skating opportunities for individuals of all ages. 

Skaters must attend the appropriate program in order to ensure the safety of all participants (for example, parents and tots must not skate with adult skaters).

Public skating schedules are pre-empted for special events. Please check the respective arena for changes. Only Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved skating aids are allowed on the ice surface.

For your safety, please read our Public Skating Rules of Conduct.

Please note that our on-ice capacities are limited to 50 MAX and so it is a first-come, first-serve

Spring & Summer 2022


There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.



The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
