The return of free public skating has been a “phenomenal” success with the number of registered participants growing daily, City Hall says.

Since it began at the Progressive Auto Sales Arena on Nov. 10 the program has expanded from seven to 21 weekly time slots for adult, family, open and parent-tot skating.

And the number of skaters allowed on the ice has increased to 25 from 20.

Participants must preregister and follow all protocols. Spectators are not permitted.

The city said additional public skating sessions are planned during the holidays, with the regular program resuming from January to March.
