Welcome to the Glendale/Glendale Meadows Community Association Website
Stay Safe At The Glendale Outdoor Rinks
We are thrilled with the popularity of Glendale’s Outdoor Rinks this winter and are grateful to the volunteers who have been maintaining the ice for our community and providing much-needed recreation opportunities as we head into the holidays.
But keeping yourself safe and protecting your friends and family in our community is our top priority right now. Glendale needs all of us to join in the continuing fight against Covid-19 by following all of the rules set in place by the Province of Alberta and the City of Calgary for Covid safety at outdoor rinks (see below).
Effective immediately, Glendale Outdoor Rinks will be limited to a maximum of 50 people – that includes the hockey rink, the skating oval, the pleasure skating rink and the tots hockey patch. Please respect the rules that no pucks are allowed on the pleasure rink or skating oval at any time.
Washroom facilities and the Main Hall will remain closed.
The rink shack is restricted to maintenance workers only.
For your personal safety and as a courtesy to all users:
- Wear a facemask at all times (they prevent virus spread and keep your face warm)
- Social distance on and off the ice (stay about a hockey stick length away from anyone not in your immediate family)
- Wear a helmet
- Limit your skating time to one hour to ensure others get a chance to skate too
These strange times won’t last forever, so if we can all support each other through these few weeks, we can get back to normal soon.

Masks and face coverings
At our outdoor skating rinks, you should wear a mask where it could be difficult to maintain a 2 metre distance from people outside of your household. For example, masks can be worn:
- From the parking lot to the skating rink
- When putting skates on or taking them off
- On the ice
You do not have to wear a mask if you meet any of the exemption criteria. Learn more about the Temporary Face Coverings Bylaw
