“RDN recreation and parks is feeling pretty cool now that one sheet of ice is back in at Oceanside Place. We are excited to see participants back on the ice and on the pickleball courts. To come and play at Oceanside Place, all groups and participants must be pre-registered, as drop-ins are not allowed,” said Collen Jordan, marketing and communications programmer, for the RDN park department.
