The Fallingbrook Community Association operates three outdoor rinks within Fallingbrook on behalf of the City of Ottawa.  Each rink has a hockey rink and a smaller leisure skating rink. We hire youths to supervise and maintain the rinks.  Each rink also has a volunteer rink manager who supervises the rink attendants.
