Have you tried skating on the outdoor public rink at McLaughlin Meadows in High River?

Outdoor rink

It's the only public rink in High River and you'll have to bring your show shovel and really watch where you skate because of the ice conditions.

Mayor Craig Snodgrass says they're aware of it and are looking at ways of fixing it.

"All I can update you on is that we've started our budget discussions and that rink is part of the discussion... how to fund it and get that. That needs to be on a priority list, and we'll figure out how to get it fixed up and how much we can do there but there's money available put it that way, just a commitment from Council to get it done."

So, if you're looking to skate on a rink with boards you'll need to do so at the Rec Plex.

Otherwise, Emerson and Sunshine lakes are open to skate on as well as the skating surface at George Lane Park, but they don't have boards.
