The Emera Oval officially reopened on Monday with a different season in mind. 

The popular public ice skating oval will now be a space for Haligonians to try out rollerblading, roller-skating and cycling.

Public skates began Monday morning. The municipality also released the planned schedule for the summer

Equipment can be borrowed during any of the scheduled events if need be, but only on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone hoping to rent equipment will need a valid government-issued photo ID. 

The municipality says groups can book the Oval as well. 

More than 100,000 people used the Oval over the winter season, which ended on Mar. 18.
