The Oval is a great outdoor skate. The best time to hit the ice is at the beginning of the skate when the ice is fresh.

In winter the Emera oval is teeming with people enjoying the change to ice skate in the sunshine, listening to music, meeting up with friends and then enjoying a beaver tail snack afterwards! There are skate-aids (red "chairs" to hold onto) for novices as well. What a wonderful way to spend a winter afternoon! No charge for skate rental. In the summer, residents and tourists enjoy roller-blading, also for free. A great community resource for all !

We walked by this everyday we were in Halifax. There was always people at the park, weather the rode bikes, incline skates. On weekends there was a outdoor movie being played.

Some ride for everyone --skateboard, bike, tryke, granny bike, bike with trailer, inline skates and more. Free checkout with id. Ride around an oval, bikes to the outside. They ran out of bikes, unfortunately. Intergenerational fun.

While I do not skate myself, it is wonderful to watch skaters of all ages out enjoying the Oval. A wonderful asset to the city of Halifax.
