"After transforming her own community rink into a buzzing family hot spot, resident Jutta Mason is branching out.

Ms. Mason, who worked for years to rejuvenate the outdoor pad, now has a councillor, a parks manager and a $100,000 grant in her arsenal to take her rink fix across the city.

Dufferin Grove Park is no longer your typical barren city rink. The park, bordered by Dufferin Street to the west, between Bloor and College Streets, comes alive daily, with hockey-helmeted young people zipping around the dual ice pads in brightly coloured snowsuits. Nearby, someone is tending to the fire pit to warm chilled hands and feet."
