Ice Hockey and Skating

Ice Hockey and Skating

Hey, we live in Canada—we make the most of winter and the sports that come with it! In Kentville, hockey and ice skating are at the top of that list.

Centennial Arena is one of Kentville’s sport and recreation focal points. It’s an all-season facility which hosts various events such as hockey and figure skating, and it’s a destination for indoor public skating.

The three outdoor skating ponds to check out are Duck Pond (at Oakdene Park), Frog Pond (at Memorial Park), and Miners Marsh—but only when the ice is thick enough, of course!

About Ice Thickness

Ice thickness needs to be at least 15 cm for walking or skating alone, 20 cm for skating parties or games, 25 cm for snowmobiles. Be safe. Avoid going out on the ice at night and always check conditions before venturing out. People using the ponds and lakes do so at their own risk.
