Notes

This rink is a hidden jewel!

It's a beautifully designed, sunken rink in the round just off Yonge Street, behind offices and shopping, with landscaping around it. One of the last rinks to be built during the tenure of visionary Parks Commissioner Herb Pirk, this rink was mothballed all winter in 2002 because of a minor problem in the cooling system. Nobody complained! Very few people use the rink despite its proximity to Ryerson University and some major hotels. It's an orphan, waiting for adoption.
