Pefferlaw Ice Pad - Opened Dec. 21, 2020 

38 Pete’s Lane, Pefferlaw

Our outdoor skating facility is located in Pefferlaw. This is a 80 x 180 ft. open-air facility with rink boards.

The Pefferlaw Ice Pad (PIP) is permitted to be open during the Grey-Lockdown zone.

The Town of Georgina is committed to ensure a safe environment for our community, participants and staff during their visit to the PIP.  COVID-19 protocols are in place and will enable us to provide a great skating experience for the winter season.  We will continue to work closely with York Region Public Health and the provincial government to review the details of our winter plans and ensure a responsible safety plan to guide us to a safe and positive outdoor skating experience this season.  

We urge you not to visit the PIP if you do not feel well, or if anyone in your household is ill.
