It takes a community to build a rink!

The Plant Pool Recreation Association (PPRA) operates the Winter Rink in Plouffe park with a grant from the City of Ottawa and an enormous volunteer effort by people like You!


Tradition of Skating Rinks at Plouffe Park

PPRA has undertaken this activity (under a “purchase of service agreement” with the City of Ottawa, i.e., the City pays PPRA to provide the rinks) since the inception of the PPRA.

The PPRA has developed a tradition of providing a quality winter recreational activity at Plouffe Park which is free for everyone. In conjunction with the rink the PPRA operates a skate lending program.

This vintage photo from the Plouffe Park Rink shows the ice labyrinth created by Doug Gabelmann in use a decade ago.
