Public and Family Ice Skating in Peterborough & the Kawarthas
- Posted by: Cara Walsh on November 16, 2012
Gliding along frozen water. Seeing your warm breath in the frosty air. There is nothing more quintessentially Canadian than ice skating. Arenas and community centres in the City & County of Peterborough offer public skating at various times throughout the winter season. So whether you’re looking to take your kids out skating, get out with some friends, or have a romantic arm-in-arm skating excursion with your significant other. Once the Trent Canal has frozen you can skate under the shadow of the world famous Peterborough Lift Lock – until then, here are some great venues where you can slide in for some winter fun.
