KS – December 14, 2017


Week in Review

Outdoor Ice Rinks

One benefit that comes with the colder weather is fantastic ice conditions on our outdoor rinks!

Weather permitting; the outdoor rink season will operate from mid December, 2017 to mid February 2018. Some sites may extend their season on a voluntary basis.

The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department sponsors the Ottawa Rink Conditions website. Residents visiting http://www.ottawarinks.ca/en/home can obtain and post reports of conditions at their local outdoor rink.

I invite you to join me in thanking all of the outdoor rink volunteers who donate their time to look after our rinks and keep them in the best shape for your use and enjoyment.  Thank you!

If you would like to volunteer at your local rink please contact your Community Association or email SeasonalRecreation@ottawa.ca.


Winter Maintenance Road Quality Standards

The City of Ottawa maintenance standards are used to classify types of roadways which are then used to prioritize how frequently roads are plowed, how ice is controlled and how snow is removed within the City. High priority roads and most arterial roads are dealt with first.

Snow removal:

  • City crews will plow residential roads to a snow-packed surface. When necessary, materials will be applied to keep roads safe.
  • The time to clear snow from residential roads is 10 hours from the end of snow accumulation (7cm)
  • Bus stops are cleared within 24 hours after the snow accumulation has ended.
  • Minor collectors will be cleared to center bare within 6-16 hours of the end of accumulation

More information regarding snow removal can be found on my website.
