    Haha it’s Canada cold enough to freeze the water , it’s just ground underneath , they usually water them late in the night , doesn’t last long ,
    Some people who have big enough property and have a man-made pond can skate on them , my friend who lives in Ontario , he’s got a few acres of land , he has a shallow natural pond and in the winter , he uses it for a skating rink.

    How do they make these outdoor rinks?

    You ask a good question. There are few different ways to make rinks. I wasn’t sure how they made these rinks. So I look Lion’s Club website to see how they made these rinks. It turns out they just flood the frozen ground.

    Is it natural ground under it and they fill it with water and freeze it?

    Yes it is.

    Or is it some kind of a pond that froze in the winter?

    No pond.

    If you cut a hole in the ice is there fish below?

    No.

    I found a few pictures that show how these rinks were made. I hope this helps.
    Now days people will make smaller rinks using a liner to hold the water til it freezes. I made one last winter.

    Your welcome! Yeah I guess it would never happen in Florida. Making a rink is alot of work and you need alot of cold weather.

    That is a quite a load on that truck. A truck like that would most likely get pulled over here in Ontario.

    Yeah it’s amazing what you can make with the right tools , our model shop in the company can pretty much make anything , and if they can’t , our composite department with the 3D printer can do it also
