Strengths: Torontoís major destination rink. Always open, ice usually in good condition. Survives March sunlight better because of shade of big hotel. Skate rental. Good after-hours shinny hockey.


Areas for improvement: This rink lost points because it has no inside changeroom or benches. No mats in the washrooms. The zamboni staff room is hidden at the back and the rink guard room looks slummy. Rink guards arenít being ambassadors.


Next steps: Get mats for the washrooms. Since the rink/ public washroom building is scheduled for demolition at an uncertain date, so no improvements can be made now, set up a friendly campfire area beside the rink with benches, hot chocolate and marshmallows.
