The city's outdoor rink season is posted on the outdoor rinks page here. This is the latest opening possible (the current rule is last Saturday in November). 40 rinks are scheduled to open on November 30 (last year: Nov.24). 12 are scheduled to open Dec.7 (last year Dec.1). Rivercrest is going to run just as a natural ice rink.
Harbourfront's Natrel Rink opened for the season on Saturday Nov.16. Mid-November was the standard for the city's rinks for many years, until amalgamation.
The Bentway is the latest rink to open this season: not until Dec.20.
From the beginning of November, the individual rink listings gave the opening schedules for 8 rinks from Nov.23. A good idea but -- sadly -- misinformation. By Nov.15 all had been changed to Nov.30 except Ramsden and Dufferin. BY Nov.20, only Dufferin Rink was still scheduled from Nov.23.
