The Outdoor Rink

The Outdoor Rink project was produced during the 2020/21 winter pandemic in Ottawa. The city has 270 outdoor community rinks – the most in the country. They are jointly run thanks to a unique arrangement between the City of Ottawa and hundreds of volunteers who work long hours to flood and clean the rinks. The community rinks form the backbone of winter activities in the city and provide a safe place for residents to enjoy the outdoors. The Outdoor Rink project culminated in a book and and public exhibition. The city purchased copies of the book and donated them to volunteers as a thank you for all their hard work during a tough pandemic winter.
