Will anyone use this facility that has a maximum of 10 people at a time?

When I first heard about this outdoor skating rink I thought "wow, what an awesome gesture. Maybe I've been too hard on the man". Now having seen the "skating rink" I am thinking "why did you bother with the expense?" If this is a skating rink then mini golf is a golf course.
I have a humble suggestion for Mr Prystay for the future. Since you have already paid for the capital for the plant, next year make a longer and narrower ice sheet. It may not be good for shinny hockey but at least it would take more than four strides to cover the length. Maybe you could even create a curling lane for dual purpose use. I could see the potential for some interesting Parrot Pub league tourneys on several slow bar nights with five end games.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

I was curious about the size of it, in the photo it did not look very large. Oh well his money, his ice rink as small as it may be.

I would think that Mr. Prystay only owns the land down to the high water mark (think thats how it works). Nobody can deny access to all of the beach.

When you going skating or are you just complaining? Chances are the beach won't be too busy in the next three months.

It is winter and the lake will be at one of it's lowest levels....are we sure the skating rink is not available to nudists! C'mon, at least ten of them could fit on there in there lawn chairs. About the same a a frozen backyard swimming pool.
Actually, following Prystays definition, there are tons of people in Penticton that when selling their homes, can now legitimately say they have back yard skating rinks in the winter.

Saw a little rink with nets set up on the pond on Eastside road, looked a lot better.

The reservoir up Arawana Rd. is an incredible outdoor rink if you can get to it!! A small outdoor rink in Penticton is better then what we had last winter.

Jeez....don't you people have anything nice to say about anything? This guy does a good deed for the city and there you are knocking him down. It is small, hence the ten person limit. Ten people get an opportunity to enjoy themselves for an hour or so for free. Say thank you and let it alone!!

Garnet, South Skaha, Darke, Naramata... this year looks like it might be a bust but aside from that I'm out on ACRES of frozen lake every year.
It's free and I hardly every see anyone other than me and who i bring with me out...

why people are making a stink about this boggles my mind when all you have to do is drive down the road (even Eastside road has a few ponds that freeze over) to OK Falls and lace up.
