 *Please Note* Access to the rink is weather dependant. If it is too warm, and especially if it is raining, the rink will be closed. 

The Corkery Rink is an integral part of our community. The rink is built 100% by VOLUNTEERS. The city of Ottawa gives the association a grant to help buy some equipment and supplies but all of the labour to clean, flood and maintain the rink is done by volunteers. 

We ALWAYS NEED VOLUNTEERS to help flood and maintain the rink. This not-so-glamorous but much appreciated job is crucial in maintaining a great ice rink.  With out volunteers, there would be no rink.

Once the rink is built and we have an ice base we require 3 teams of 2 people to flood the rink. Ideally each team floods twice a week. Each flood takes about 2 hours. Major Snow falls are removed with a snow blower so the flood team is generally responsible for only a scrape and a flood.  

 Floods generally happen around 10:00 at night after the rink is closed but they can also be done early in the morning or if you are interested in volunteering we could most likely work around your schedule. 

If you can help once in a while or on a regular basis, please contact the Rink Boss at rink@corkerycommunity.ca.

Thank you to the volunteers who work so tirelessly to maintain our rink!
