With the reinstatement of recreation programs, we’re using our spaces for regularly scheduled programs.
Call 865-7558 with any questions.
The Arena is Temporarily Closed for Group Use
The Burlington Parks, Recreation & Waterfront Department will be following all Recreational Sports restrictions implemented by Governor Scott’s most recent COVID-19 mandate. Effective Immediately, we are suspending all of our current Recreational Sports Programming and closing our City Recreation Facilities to outside groups renting gymnasium and ice time. We will be awaiting guidance from the Governor’s Office regarding a timeline for restarting Recreational Sports programming and for reopening our facilities to the public for Recreational Sports use. We are not canceling or suspending registrations for Recreational Sports Programs we are offering later this winter. Recreation staff will be contacting participants with updates on the status of programs beginning in December and January. We are committed to participant safety. The health of our community and participants must come first during these difficult times.
When we reopen you will be able to make reservations online.
You can also call 802-865-7558 to check for availability, or Email us to reserve space at Leddy Ice Arena.
