Toronto’s outdoor ice rinks open for the season this month

You can glide across the City of Toronto’s outdoor ice rinks this month.

Mayor John Tory announced Thursday that 38 of the city’s outdoor ice rinks would open, weather permitting, on Nov. 27. The remaining 13 ice rinks will open on December 4th.

The outdoor ice rinks will be open for free recreational skating and shinny, as well as instructional programs and permits. Unlike last year, there is no need for reservations for ice skating.

“We are doing everything we can as a city government to ensure that Toronto residents have access to safe and fun outdoor recreation this winter,” Tory said.

“Our advances in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and getting people vaccinated have allowed us to open our outdoor skating rinks to more people and more activities, including the return of shining.”

The outdoor ice rinks will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily throughout the season. The changing rooms will operate with 50% capacity, but skaters are encouraged to arrive dressed for the ice.

“I know Toronto residents are ready to jump into the winter and get the most out of the city’s parks and other recreational activities,” Tory said.

“I encourage people to come outside and enjoy these winter activities.”
