That means putting an end to skating on the Emera Oval, which the municipality announced Monday that it will close on Sunday evening.
According to figures provided by the Halifax Regional Municipality, more than 115,00 participants visited the Oval during its three-month winter season.
The municipality says it will quickly work to prepare the Oval surface and swap the free equipment on site to facilitate skating, scootering and biking options.
It plans to reopen the facility on June 1.
Halifax also announced a delay in registration for its summer recreation programs on Monday.
Originally scheduled for March 27, the registration date has now been shifted to April 10, beginning at 10 a.m. Atlantic time.
The municipality says this will ensure that “staff can provide the public with a broad range of options during the registration process for summer programs and camps.”
