Just a quick update from us here in Portland, Ontario. The lake is slowly starting to skim over and obviously we are thinking about the upcoming skating season. We feel that exercise is super important at this time and we have decided to commit to maintaining the oval once again, weather permitting of course. We don't think we can have our regular Skate the Lake weekend at the end of January and realize that is a disappointment for so many of you who look forward to it every year but we do feel we have an alternative. And while we are still working out some details we would like to introduce the Skate the Lake Challenge. Set your personal goal and keep track of the laps you skate on our oval! Can you skate 5, 50 or even 100 kilometers throughout the season? #SkateTheLakeChallenge #SkateTheLake #SkateTheLake2021 #STL2021

In 2009, Rick Mercer visited Portland. As you can see, it was a great day.

This would not be possible without community support.


Have you been skating a lot?  We hope so, your $25 donation will help with all the little things that ad up over the course of a season. 

Thank you


We can't thank you enough, with the rising cost of insurance and equipment your $100 donation is helping us pay the bills incurred each winter by our team of local volunteers.

Thank you
