Given the challenges of the past year, we wanted to offer a bit of fun for the community and a chance to get outside with the family for some much-needed lockdown-safe exercise. Although there is no charge to use the ice pad or trails, we ask that you consider donating a small amount ($5 suggested) to one of three local charities (Bluedoor, Inn from the Cold, and Newmarket Food Pantry) who are helping those most in need during this pandemic and lockdown.
OUR GRAND OPENING IS SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, JAN 22 – bring your skates and your family! DOGS ON LEASH ARE WELCOME!
Every weekend, Fridays to Sundays (10am to 5:15pm), from Jan to March, weather permitting, FREE OF CHARGE, you can skate on our very own ice pad! (see video of our rink being built!) At present, we are allowing only 5 people on the ice at a time, so it will feel like your own private ice rink.
We have also opened up our beautiful course for walking trails – the longer one (2.5km) is our Ursa Major trail, the shorter one is our Ursa Minor trail (1.5km). We are doing our best to keep the trails clear so strollers should be fine. We are also only allowing 5 people on the wal
king trails per hour, so you can count on a quiet walk. Map is available on booking websites below.
We are launching a new sister business, Sixteen Lakes Kitchen & Bistro, which will be preparing a delicious selection of seasonal snacks, hearty soups and wraps to keep you going after a brisk skate or leisurely stroll. There will be hot chocolates for the kids and mulled wines for everyone else!
Delicious fresh and frozen take-home meals will also be available for purchase, as will treats for your furry friends. Please see booking websites below for menu. Our direct line for takeout is 905 836 8070x233. Order while out-and-about and have your food hot and ready for pick-up!
