kids playing hockey on indoor rink

The Municipality of Port Hope operates an indoor skating rink at the Jack Burger Sports Complex. We also maintain the outdoor skating rink at Caroline Street. The indoor skating arena is available for public use and rentals

The Ontario Government announced the province is temporarily moving to a modified Step Two of its Roadmap to Reopen. As of Tuesday, January 4, 2022, the Jack Burger Sports Complex and the Town Park Recreation Centre will be closed until the end of the provincial order. We are in the process of contacting user groups, and registered participants. As always, we thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate these mandates.
