#Toronto Nathan Phillips Square Ice Rink Ready

The rink is ready for skates just in time for the winter celebration known as the Cavalcade of Lights which means skating, music, concerts, fireworks and lights, lights, lights. Oh, and a Christmas Tree.
Decorations are on the tree and the stage has been put in place

This is all happening at Toronto's City Hall and the square construction continues (mostly to the north west side now) and the rebuild of the skating rink freezing system has been finished, the Zamboni has been working to get the rink's surface ready in time for this Saturday's (November 26, 2011) event and some have even started to enjoy skating.

Skate Rental on site with costs: $10 for a 2hr rental
See the rink refurbishment project underway after the jump.

Thousands of feet of plastic pipe are laid in carefully constructed rows running the length of the rink.
Workers then place fine sand around and on top of the layer of pipes
The lines are tied into the collector system which circulates and distributes the coolant into the smaller pipes
