Night skating at Toronto City Hall

Toronto's outdoor rinks started opening late in November and people have been flocking to Nathan Phillips Square ever since. Skating by the Toronto sign and under the illuminated arches at night makes for a magical evening. The city has 52 outdoor rinks including a covered rink at at Greenwood Park and also several skating trails like the one that can be found at Colonel Samuel Smith Park. Skating continues into March, weather permitting.

“The opening of our City-run ice rinks is the true kick-off for the winter season in Toronto,” said Mayor Tory. “Enjoying outdoor skating across the city is part of what makes winters in Toronto great. I urge residents across Toronto to lace up their skates this weekend and join in the fun."
The rinks are cooled by compressors which allows the facilities to stay open during a range of temperatures, however unseasonably warm temperatures can temporarily cause the rink to close. You can find a list of the city rinks on the city's webpage.
