COVID-RELATED RESTRICTIONS: To find out how to book a skating time, go to the city's outdoor rinks web page.
All shinny hockey has been removed except for Greenwood (and only children and youth are allowed there). The city's opening rules are described here and our rinks blog is here.
Opened for the season
The rink was scheduled to be open on Dec.1, but opened today for the first time.
This rink is next to a school. At 3.35, the kids have already got their skates on, playing shinny.
This rink opened on Nov.29, closed on Nov.30, and reopened on Dec.2.
We went by late Monday night. The compressors were on and a layer of rime build up covered the surface of the rink.
Ok ice and half a dozen kids skating. No staff visible and building was locked. Kids were using gloves for goal posts. No signs announcing opening date.
This rink is a textbook example of the wasted buildings (and under-used rinks?) in Etobicoke. At 9.30 a.m. on a beautiful Saturday morning in the Christmas holidays, one solitary boy was at the rink, taking shots on a half-broken goal net. The rink house looked like a solid building whose main feature is locked doors.
2:50pm A man is playing hockey with a young boy. He says the rink was rebuilt but there have been some problems.
2:20pm The rink isn't scheduled to open until Dec 15.
