Dooley Gardens is a Canadian television sitcom, which aired on CBC Television in 1999.[1]

The series was set in a hockey rink in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, inherited by Skye Dooley (Nicole de Boer) after the death of her father.[2] The show's cast also included Mary Walsh as canteen operator Marilyn Benoit, Andy Jones as manager Eddie Hawco, Andrew Younghusband as the possibly-crazy zamboni driver Tracy, and Ron Hynes as Johnny Shea. Younghusband and Edward Riche were the show's writers.[3]

The show's pilot aired on CBC Television in October 1997,[4] and the regular series had a six-episode run beginning on March 3, 1999.[1]

Danielle House made a guest appearance on the series as Wanda, Tracy's ex-girlfriend.[5]

At the 14th Gemini Awards, Giles Walker was shortlisted for Best Direction in a Comedy Program or Series for the episode "The Wedding".[6]
