Skate on Kemptville Creek

The Kemptville Community Skateway is an outdoor rink on Kemptville Creek in downtown Kemptville. Maintained by the Municipality of North Grenville and following the natural waterway, the skateway is the length of approximately three and a half NHL hockey rinks and over twice as wide! The rink starts at Curry Park and follows the banks of the natural waterway, into downtown Kemptville.
