Backyard Rink Dimensions
For our Backyard Hockey League :) you can make rinks of all sizes... and different shapes limited only by your own imagination.
When I built my first rink, it was 16 feet by 32 feet and had square corners. Now its dimensions are 32 feet by 40 feet. My kids have grown since the first years of our backyard ice rink. I have made plans to increase it to 48 feet by 64 feet.
