Emera Oval Reviews
Just bring your government ID and you can borrow skates for you and your family or friends for free. One of the best things the city could have provided. If you're looking for a cheap and fun winter..... more »
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. more »
A very fun, family-friendly, free outing. Borrow everything you need to have a great time: roller blades/skates, bikes, trikes, scooters, helmets. There's something for everyone, including some accessible options.
Amazing place to have fun, although lately you used to be able to just get your equipment pass, go in the garage and grab whatever you wanted, now you need a scooter pass, skateboard pass, bike pass, roller skates pass etc. They took out some cool equipment too. All and all, its a fun place but its not like it used to be.
