The city's outdoor rinks status is posted on the official outdoor rinks page here. All of the city's rinks are listed as open for the season except for Rivercrest, which has "mechanical issues" and is scheduled to run as a natural ice rink this season when it's cold enough.
At 8 p.m. Saturday, three of the North Toronto rinks are marked as closed for "ice conditions." The two Scarborough rinks have a maintenance alert for periodic water removal (important, to keep the rainwater from freezing and making the ice too thick -- find out more about how mechanically cooled ice rinks work here). The other city rinks are marked as open.
Shinny hockey: The city's policy of treating shinny hockey the same as full-equipment/full-contact hockey and requiring mandatory helmets for shinny is a problem. Read more in the Dufferin Grove January newsletter.
