A Message from Paula Fletcher

Dear Friends,

I'm writing to share with you some disappointing news from the Parks Department about the skating rink and new skate track at Greenwood Park. It was due to open this winter, but because of an exceptionally rainy October and many surprises during the excavation of the current rink, construction of the rink has been delayed. The team found old pipes in the ground that needed to be decommissioned and properly removed, and because of the wet weather the construction took longer than expected. The concrete slab must be poured in one day, and requires there be no frost on the ground and above freezing temperatures, which is not possible now. The work on the roof will continue, and should be completed by mid-January.

This is very unfortunate. Like you, I was looking forward to skating in Greenwood Park this winter, but it looks like we will have to wait for next year. Because of this setback, I have asked City staff to extend skating hours at the nearby rinks in Monarch Park and Jimmie Simpson Park and will be posting those hours on my website as soon as they are finalized. You can see all of Toronto's outdoor skating locations and the schedules at
