The#TOBentway Skate Trail opening 2018

Skating under the Gardiner Expressway comes back with the onset of winter during opening day on Friday, December 21, 2018 with the start of "Skate the 8 in the Six." The figure-eight skate trail sitting adjacent to historic Fort York has skate rentals, warming lounges and fire pits - plus the skating is free. The skate trail also hosted its first ever Polar Bear Skate on the 30th of December, 2018 where skaters took to the ice in their underwear.

“Who would want to hang out under an expressway? Lots of Torontonians, apparently,” declared Alex Bozikovic, Architecture Critic for The Globe and Mail. “In praise of The Bentway,” began a Toronto Star editorial. “It’s very Canadian,” proclaimed the CBC. Skate rentals and skating lessons will be offered again this year, there will be curated food and beverage options on select dates, and an expanded winter village full of snuggly blankets, warming lounges, and fire pits. More details and programming to come."
