Lace up your skates and join us
Kensington Complex in North Burnaby offers ice skating and other ice sports during the fall and winter (closed for the 2023/2024 ice season), in-line skating during the spring, and activities for preschoolers and children during the spring and summer.
- Snack Bar (currently unavailable)
With its NHL regulation ice rink and spectator seating, the arena in Kensington Complex offers ice skating and other ice sports, including hockey and figure skating in the fall and winter, along with skating camps during winter school breaks. In spring and summer, the ice is removed and the rink is converted to dry-floor use for in-line skating, lacrosse and summer camps.

You can rent hockey and figure skates at our shop for a fee. Helmets are available at no charge.
