Canada Games Oval Grand Opening Postponed

(Tuesday, December 14, 2010) - The Grand Opening for the Canada Games Oval on the North Common, previously scheduled for Wednesday, December 15th at 5 p.m., has been postponed until further notice. Due to unseasonably high temperatures and rainfall amounts over the past few days, the ice is not suitable for skating.

HRM Operations staff is currently working to restore the ice surface as soon as possible. Details for the rescheduled Grand Opening and the first public skate will be released shortly. All public skating previously scheduled is also postponed until further notice. Visit or call the information line at 490-2347 for updates.

The Canada Games Oval will be the largest artificial ice surface east of Quebec City and will be featured as HRM’s marquee outdoor venue for the Halifax 2011 Canada Games from February 11th to 27th.
