The Town of Huntsville said in a release today that the Cann Lake Skating Rink will remain closed for the 2016 winter season.
Mayor Scott Aitchison notes that “due to this year’s unpredictable weather conditions, shortened winter season and the resources that are required to build and maintain the rink, the Municipality is unable to offer Cann Lake as a service for 2016. Council does recognize the importance of the rink to the community however the annual resources required to deliver this service is not something that is feasible under these conditions.”
Residents are encouraged to visit the Canada Summit Centre for many public skating opportunities such as; Adult Shinny, Adult and Senior Skate, Weekend Public Skate as well as the Parent and Tot Skate. Rates and specific public skating times are available online at huntsville.ca. Residents can also contact customer service for more details at 705-789-6421.
