Surrounded by lights, the unique 375-metre natural ice surface is for all ages. The Sturgeon Skating Trail and parking can be accessed from Cardiff Park Road.
The trail winds through the trees in a full loop, making it accessible for new and experienced skaters. The trail is open daily until 10:00 p.m. Visitors are asked to properly distance, as per Alberta Health Services guidelines.

The skating trail is a natural ice surface and injuries can happen due to natural/unnatural hazards such as uneven surfaces, cracks in the ice, holes, rocks, weather/ice conditions and other skaters. Trail may be closed due to poor conditions or weather. Ice is checked daily. Although Sturgeon County maintains the skating surfaces, please thoroughly check the ice before you skate, as this is an unsupervised area. Skaters use these surfaces at their own risk.
