RINK REPORT CARD: 2007-2008

Greenwood

Gerrard St. E. at Alton

416 392-7804

Strengths: Double pad in residential neighborhood. Huge space because of shared use with pool in summer. In well used park near playground and good sledding hills. Good shinny hockey. Rink is well-used by the neighborhood on weekends.


Areas for improvement: This rink has more youth and more violence issues. Recreation staff must make families feel more welcome. Poor signage and insufficient building maintenance. Some users think it looks like a jail


Next steps: More benches outdoors and indoors in the ante-room. Increased mats from changeroom to rink. Better and more reliable ice maintenance. Teach shovel protocol to on-site rec staff. Anteroom should be more family friendly with games and magazines, minor (staff-run) snack bar. Wire cage at entrance should be removed, entrance should be repainted. Have weekly family-skate events and youth events.
