Blackmud Creek Community - allard


The Blackmud Creek Community League is extremely fortunate that MLC Land, a local residential real estate developer working in Allard, was generous enough to build an outdoor skating rink for the community. It can take community leagues YEARS to fundraise enough money for a rink, let alone other facilities such as a hall. The rink features top-of-the-line construction materials, such as professional grade boards, floodlights, and a concrete playing surface base that makes flooding the rink much easier. We have also been able to use one of their trailers as a heated change facility. Thank you MLC Land!

The rink hours are as follows: Monday to Friday 5:00-9:00 pm, Saturday 9:00 am - 9:00 pm, and Sunday 1:00-7:00 pm.

Family Skate times, where the nets are removed from the main rink and sticks and pucks are not allowed are as follows: Monday to Friday 6:00-7:00 pm, Saturday 9:00-10:00 am or 2:00-3:00 pm or 6:00-7:00 pm, and Sunday 1:00-2:00 pm and 6:00-7:00 pm.

We get a lot of similar questions and concerns about the rink, so we have prepared a document:
