All skating sessions are limited to a maximum of 50 people at a time. Access cards are required. 

Skating is a great way to stay physically fit while having fun with one of Canada’s favourite activities. So lace up those skates and enjoy the ice! The qplex is available for private bookings, and offers public skating, along with community-organized programs such as KV Minor Hockey. For general information on ice rentals and availability call (506) 848-5900 or stop by the Administration Office at the qplex.

Coupled with its sister facility, the Quispamsis Memorial Arena (QMA), the qplex provides the town with a second indoor ice surface. The qplex maintains its ice surface throughout the year while the QMA, located at 350 Hampton Road, operates as an ice rink for approximately six months of the year.

To help keep you safe and healthy at the qplex during Covid-19, the Town of Quispamsis is providing Access Cards for public skating and the walking track. These cards will help with contact tracing (as required by Public Health), extend availability schedules, and limit the number of people allowed on the walking track and ice at any given time. When maximum capacity is reached, further access will be denied.
