The Mill Woods Seniors Association is conveniently located in the heart of the Mill Woods, sharing the same beautiful, award-winning building as the Mill Woods Edmonton Public Library.

“Our goal is to keep seniors (55+) active and engaged in the diverse and exciting community of Mill Woods through a variety of programs, events and services, such as sports, art classes, exercise classes, educational presentations, outings, monthly dinners, cooking demonstrations, and so much more!”


Women’s Self Defense Course

Women’s Self Defense Course (adults and teens) on Saturday, November 30th from 6:30 – 9:30 pm in our Community Hall.

“Learn to protect yourself in a realistic way. Our program is like no other self-defense course taught to the public. Using our background and experience, we will combine what in our opinion is the most applicable material and pass it in the most efficient way onto our students. The classes are fun and eye opening with empowering material taught in an enjoyable way.
This is not a program that requires you to be an athlete for it to work, nor is it based on sport arenas or winning trophies.”

If you have further questions or want to book yourself in, please contact Tamara at programs@burnewood.ca or 780-777-8184.

Registration cost is $20, and the remainder of your fee is funded by the Burnewood Community League.
There are limited spots available, so don’t wait and register with Tamara soon!

Rink Info

September 21, 2019
Our new all-season rink is now open to our community!
Helmets are recommended for applicable sports.
For any maintenance issues, please contact Kristen Kuefler admin@burnewood.ca during the off-ice season.

Please be respectful of our brand new rink
and help us keep it clean!

Hours of Operation for the Ice Rinks

Mar 17 2019: The ice rinks are closed for the season.

*The ice rink opens in early December (pending completion of flooding of both rinks) and, on average, runs until approximately March (subject to change without notice, courtesy of Mother Nature).
Reminder! Hours of operation below are only in effect once the boarded rink is finished and open (weather permitting).

Monday to Friday:
6:00pm – 9:00pm
Saturday and Sunday (and Stat holidays):
12:00pm – 4:00pm / 6:00pm – 9:00pm (ice maintenance during break)
*All times are subject to interruption due to weather and ice conditions.

Shinny for all ages is to be played on the boarded rink. Shinny is not permitted on the side rink.
Public skating is shared with overflow (if needed) on the side rink.


-18C, including wind-chill, is City-imposed; however this is always at the discretion of the Rink Attendant.

When it snows, the rinks are closed until they are both cleared


Helmets are recommended for all children. If you choose not to use a helmet, you do so at your own risk.

No playing “POST” during shinny games. This has been our policy for over 20 years. You must score without raising the puck if someone is between you and the net. Generations have learned to play this way and all have embraced it (Burnewood is always doing its part to keep insurance premiums in check).

Rink Attendants must be respectfully obeyed.

*Update for participating residents of Ward 11 (Kiniski Gardens) – messaging from the City of Edmonton Communications Coordinator for Waste Services…

It’s great to see so many carts out on the curb and in the back alleys! Thank you everyone for participating.
A few tips our collectors would like you to remember:

  • Please don’t lean your bags on the carts
  • Always keep 1m spacing in between the carts and bags or any other objects like fences, garages and cars

For front-street collection, carts should be placed on the road (not on the sidewalk or lawn).
See photos for what is acceptable and what not to do for front streets & back alleys…
