Skate rentals are available at Wallace Emerson, Campbell Avenue, Dufferin Grove and Nathan Phillips Square. There are skating trails at Dieppe, Greenwood, Rennie Park and Colonel Samuel Smith.

You can use the city’s handy chart to find your local rink’s hours right here!

Downtown Rinks

Ontario Place is open for skating as well with skate rentals and sharpening too. Hours are F: 6-11pm, Sa: 10am-11pm, Su: 10am-8pm.

Down at Harbourfront, the Natrel rink is open for slippy business with DJ Skate nights on Saturdays all winter!

Skating on The Bentway was a lovely addition this year but, thanks to a swath of warm weather, it’s now closed for the season.

Natural and Community Ice Rinks

A big thank you to all the friends and neighbours who laboured deep into the frosty night watering, clearing and maintaining our wonderful community rinks. The ice is gone but our gratitude remains!

We love, by the way, this beautiful photo essay on Community Rinks from the Globe and Mail last January.
