Civic Square

The Civic Square is located at 740 Prince Street and features a large, flexible open space that makes it perfect for public gatherings and community events. Find a quiet place to relax with a good book, enjoy a picnic lunch from a downtown restaurant, or enjoy one of the many festivals or events that take place here.

During the winter months, the large green space is converted to a large skating oval, available for free public use. The skating oval is open from dawn to dusk, closing for short periods throughout the day for routine maintenance. No advance booking is required, but please respect the posted rules and regulations. Skates can be borrowed through the Town's Equipment Loan Program.
