The Oval transformed the Halifax Commons and is easily one of the most enjoyed and used additions to our community. I am not sure it’s possible to not enjoy time spent here. Skates and helmets are available for free if needed, the staff are helpful and the facility is first rate. It’s one of those things that if tourists do they’ll probably tell everyone they know and will increase their love of our city. Situated by a beautiful green space and close to the downtown core, it’s a great location.
Definitely something everyone should try if they are ever in Halifax.

My favourite place in the winter months to enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise while still in the city. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone from here or from away.

Roller blading and biking in summer and Autumn. Skating in the winter. Perfect for all generations. Equipment on site which is great for out of town visitors.

Wow, what a wonderful chance to skate on an Olympic size oval. Skates and helmets provided at no cost. An amazing chance to experience the thrill of skating on an OVAL as Olympic skaters do.
