The opening of outdoor rinks is dependent on the mood of Mother Nature. Temperature, wind and the amount and type of precipitation are all factors that can affect ice making. It is necessary that:
  • The temperature is below -10°C for three consecutive days
  • The ground is frozen or at least snow covered
  • The temperature on the days following the precipitation remains below the freezing point
  • Sunshine and rain are scarce


Ice conditions on rinks may vary due to temperature changes. Moreover, maintenance services may be modified due to staff availability. We remind you that the use of the outdoor rinks is at your own risk.
