Glen Long Rink

F

35 Glen Long Ave

416-395-7961

Strengths: Nicely designed community centre attached, well-maintained buildings, own zamboni, rink in good repair.


Areas for improvement: This rink failed because of the poor access to the public – very limited public skating hours. Also it has no windows in the changerooms for parents to watch their kids. One staff said: “you don’t play if you don’t pay.” Taxes are paid already – open the door!


Next steps: Conform the public rink hours to the other city rinks (i.e. most of the time). Cut a window into the changeroom. Put benches near the rink so parents can watch. Have weekly family-skate events.
