Welcome to Long Track Speed Skating in Lakefield!
Every winter, the Lakefield Oval provides recreational skaters and speed skaters from across Ontario the opportunity to skate outdoors on a 400-metre track. During the winter, the Oval offers free public skating sessions, club practices, sessions for school groups, and special events.
Skating at the Oval relies on efforts of volunteers to create and clear the ice and on mother nature to provide cold weather and the right skating conditions. Before you visit the Oval, we suggest that you check this website or the Oval’s Facebook page for daily updates on ice conditions. There will also be a roadsign posted on the Lakefield Road at the Water Tower entrance (across from Kawartha Lakes Construction), indicating Open or Closed.
The unique recreational opportunity provided by the Oval is entirely the result of the hard work of volunteers combined with the ongoing support of sponsors. The Oval does not get funding for its winter programming from any level of government. Along with our community sponsors, the Oval Board appreciates donations from the individuals and families who use the facilities.
