Winter Ice Palace Returns December 17 With New Registration Process
Back for its 23rd year, the event will feature magical lights, festive decorations, cheerful music and more from December 17, 2022, to January 2, 2023.
The City of Surrey is excited to announce the return of Winter Ice Palace at Cloverdale Arena this month. Back for its 23rd year, the event will feature magical lights, festive decorations, cheerful music and more from December 17, 2022, to January 2, 2023.
This year, we're introducing a new more efficient registration process that will require patrons to register for a 90-minute session time and book rental equipment in advance. Online registration will open 72 hours before each session time; participants must register at least one hour in advance of their desired session time to secure their spot.
“Winter Ice Palace is a beloved holiday tradition that’s brought festive fun to Surrey residents of all ages for more than two decades. I’m thrilled that we’re able to bring it back this year and offer the community a chance to create memories with their loved ones again! Our new online registration system will provide guaranteed ice time and reduce congestion on the ice. Having the ability to pre-book equipment rentals online will really help alleviate stress–which is especially welcomed during the busy holiday season!” said Chris Gain, Arenas Manager, Parks Recreation & Culture at City of Surrey.
Registration will be required for every member of a party at a cost of $4.75 per person. If you have an Annual Recreation Pass, Swipe Pass or Family Fun Pass, admission will be free, but registration is still required.
Various session times will be offered throughout the event. Patrons are encouraged to view the 2022-23 Winter Ice Palace schedule to plan their visit accordingly.
Registrants will have the chance to win great prizes through this year’s ‘Say Freeze!’ Photo Contest. A total of four Recreation Surrey-themed prize baskets will be awarded to patrons during the event. To enter, patrons are asked to share a photo of themselves (or their party) enjoying this year’s event on Instagram, tag Recreation Surrey’s Instagram (@surreybcrec) and include the hashtag #WinterIcePalace in their post. Complete contest details can be viewed here.
