As others have said, Varsity View and Roblin Park are both nice. They have change rooms between the rinks.
But they both get used Mon-Thurs for kids' practices. Every team gets an assigned ice time starting in January, e.g. Monday at 7:00 to 8:00. Roblin has a 3rd rink and a trail through the baseball diamonds. Their canteen is also usually open on Saturday/Sunday. Roblin has Jackrabbits for kids K-3 Saturday afternoons.
Be aware that by rules kids' leagues (other than Jackrabbits) must cancel practice if it is colder than -25c with windchill. So if it is that cold there will be ice available.
