The city's outdoor rinks information website lists 49 city mechanically-cooled rinks as open. Withrow Rink, reconstructed last year, is listed as open for the first time this season. Ramsden Rink is not running its refrigeration equipment for the season due to "unanticipated critical mechanical issues," unspecified. But the rink is listed as open because on January 15, city staff began maintaining it as a natural ice rink.

Last week, skaters reported mostly good ice on Grenadier Pond but cautioned about staying far away from the open water at the south end. The city's yellow flag is up today.

The outdoor rink at Mississauga City Hall has a webcam -- click on their "live video stream" to check on weather-related ice conditions at a well-run rink.

The city's outdoor rinks information website is usually accurate in good weather, but otherwise, not so much.

Construction delays:

College Park trail says "delayed opening" with no date given.

Closed for the season: North Toronto Memorial (for construction). Rivercrest was first listed as "delayed opening - Jan.2019 - mechanical issues," no details given, but was then changed to "closed for the season."
