Tay Community Rink CLOSED for the Season


Council has made the difficult decision to close the Tay Community Rink for the remainder of the season.  Council recognizes the importance of outside recreational activities for both physical and mental health, but believes that keeping the rink open would be inconsistent with the Provincial stay-at-home order that is in effect to slow the spread of COVID-19 by limiting opportunities for the congregation of people.  We are hopeful that the progress of vaccinations to eliminate the threat of COVID-19 will continue rapidly and look forward to a time when our community members can once again enjoy all the facilities that Tay Township has to offer.

Tay Community Rink is an NHL-sized, refrigerated, covered, outdoor rink. The rink is located at Talbot Park (560 Calvert Street, Port McNicoll).

*The following rules are in place when the rink is open - the rink is currently CLOSED

Tay Community Rink opened on November 16 for the 2020/2021 season.  The first phase of opening will be for Private Rentals only.
