Wow, what a wonderful chance to skate on an Olympic size oval. Skates and helmets provided at no cost. An amazing chance to experience the thrill of skating on an OVAL as Olympic skaters do.

Great place to spend a winters day and get outside. Large skating oval with skates available to fit all sizes. If you’re feeling like you need some fresh air this is the place to go. Just bring your drivers license and you can get skates to use for free! The ice was really good too! Be of a challenge heading into the strong wind!

This was so much fun and free! Just make sure you have government ID with you. You can borrow roller skates, rollerblades, bicycles, etc...! It was a ton of fun and the teenage girls that I barely know had a great time.

Lays something fun to do here . It's a wonderful service that skates can be borrowed free of charge whether roller skates for summer or ice skates in winter. It's a perfect place for a family outing.

Fun place to enjoy a skate for experienced skaters. We can thank Mr Peter J Kelly for that as well as a much cleaner Halifax harbour making walking on the waterfront enjoyable again! The Oval can be harrowing for inexperienced, slow skaters and young children at times when there are teens and adults who inconsiderately brush by them at mach speeds.
