Rotary Centennial Pond closed for skating season

City staff has closed the ice rink at Discovery Landing in Spencer Smith Park for the remainder of the season. The unseasonably mild temperatures have made it difficult to maintain proper ice conditions. Staff will now begin preparations to transform the rink back to a reflective pond.

Quick Facts

  • Number of people who used Rotary Centennial Pond in 2016-17: 14,500
  • Number of donated skates to the skate lending program: 150 pairs
  • Number of times donated skates were borrowed through the skate lending program: 1,200
  • Number of skating days in 2016/2017: 64

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
