Time to lace up your skates for Toronto’s outdoor rink program

“Grab your skates and take your family and friends skating. It’s time to enjoy the great outdoors and hit the ice at one of the City’s outdoor rinks.

Fifty-one outdoor artificial ice rinks will be open starting tomorrow for people to enjoy one of Canada’s great pastimes, skating in the great outdoors.

The City’s outdoor rinks are compressor cooled, which makes it possible for them to operate in a range of weather conditions. Ice quality may vary according to the outside temperature and precipitation. Closures during the skating season are sometimes necessary due to unseasonably warm temperatures or following a heavy snowfall.

Weather permitting, the outdoor rink program will operate until February 24, with an extended season at a number of locations until March 10.

There’s an age-old Canadian saying – the hardest thing about skating is the ice. Please remember to be safe as you enjoy your skate. All children under the age of six must wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet on the ice. Helmets are also mandatory for people of all ages participating in supervised shinny hockey and learn-to-skate programs.

More information about Toronto’s outdoor artificial ice rinks, including a map of rink locations, schedules for each location, closures, learn-to-skate programs and helmet/equipment requirements, is available at
