Vancouver Parks Board Ice Rinks
Once the exclusive benefit of a cold Canadian winter as animated on the country’s numerous rivers, lakes and ponds, ice skating has become a daily choice under the sheltering and constant dome of the local arena. This activity and its many forms range from articulate figure skating to spirited hockey to recreational turns around the rink where the brisk and cooling temperatures mask the output of energy.
Skating offers an excellent aerobic workout combining exercise with an exhilarating spin. It boosts endurance, strengthens all leg muscles and abdominals while improving balance and coordination.
