The first, opened in 1851, was the first covered skating rink in the world. It was located on a dock near the St. Lawrence River. The second rink opened in 1864. It was located on the south side of the Grand-Allée, on the grounds of what is today the Plains of Abraham park. The third rink was located on the north side of the Grand-Allée ,but would later move back to the south side of Grand-Allée because the Parliament Building wanted more room. The third rink was designed by William Tutin Thomas, the son of William Thomas.
The fourth rink was built back on the south side of the Grand-Allée in 1889. It would be home to the Quebec Bulldogs ice hockey team. It would host the clubs two Stanley Cup victories in 1912 and 1913. The rink was located at the entrance to the Plains of Abraham park and officials wanted to close the arena. The fourth rink was destroyed by fire in 1918. Before the fire, the Bulldogs moved to a new 6,000 seat venue in 1914 in Parc Victoria, which was the fifth rink. The fifth rink was also known as the Quebec Arena.
