Bronte Village in Oakville is beautiful summer and winter. A skating rink close to the Bronte Village pier is a dream that has become a reality thanks to the collective efforts of the Town of Oakville and the many people who love Bronte and all it has to offer. Oakville’s Family Day 2015 marked the ribbon-cutting and the official opening of the skating rink located in Bronte Heritage Park at the foot of Bronte Road.

Faithful volunteers Mike McCormick, Brian Miller and Regional Councillor Sean O’Meara were out late and up early to flood and clean the ice surface, making the ice rink perfect for Family Day’s skaters. In fact, these three men and their helpers have faithfully maintained Bronte’s ice rink since it was created on behalf on the Town of Oakville and its opening shortly after the holidays. One can see them late at night and throughout the day faithfully shovelling the snow, clearing the surface and flooding the ice in order to make the rink as appealing to skaters and their families as its fabulous Bronte location in the park.
