Strengths: : Double pad. Good physical facility: the windows in the change room stream in light. Safe and family friendly environment with high weekend usage. Large free parking lot in this car-friendly area of East York
Areas for improvement: This rink is great overall but lost points on ice quality (appears to be forgotten by the flying squad), lack of office window and some building maintenance. Attempts have been made at a schedule but staff and users report no major improvement in reliability. Rink is sometimes locked when other rinks are open.
Next steps: Flyer the huge catchment area and many schools nearby, to increase daytime and weekday evening use. Fix women’s washroom piping. Put a window and a glass door in the staff room. Let rink stay open unsupervised when no staff are there. Put a small snack bar into the former vending machine spot, and do weekly family events
