Rink Rules:

  • All City rinks are unsupervised areas. The City of Chestermere is not responsible for loss of injury to rink users or damaged property.
  • Rink users assume the risk of any injury that may occur using the rink.
  • It is recommended that children under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult.
  • Wearing a helmet is strongly encouraged and protective padding is highly recommended.

Chestermere Lake Ice Depths: 


The City takes ice depth readings every 7 days. Visit the Lake Activities page for current ice measurements. 

Please note that the City does not give permits for any recreational activities on storm ponds. The water levels and ice thickness changes throughout the winter due to the freeze-thaw cycle and it is unsafe to be on these ponds. If residents choose to go on these ponds, they do so at their own risk.
