The Toronto Bentway Polar Bear Skate 2023

Christmas holiday season is coming fast and New Year's Eve and New Year's Day celebrations includes some cool activities such as the Toronto Bentway Polar Bear Skate on Sunday, December 31, 2023 and the Toronto Polar Bear Swim on January 1, 2024. The photo at top is from a previous skate at the park located beside Old Fort York.

The Bentway lies under the elevated Gardiner Expressway and in winter time they have a skating path that winds around the park in a figure eight. And on New Year's Eve day the rink is reserved for the Polar Bear Skate where participants come out on the ice in their underwear for a good cause - donations of clothing for people with limited income.

This is a free event and you can rent skates there is you don't have a pair. Those that join the event will get a free Bentway touque and there is hot chocolate available. Registration is from noon till 12:50pm, then the skate starts at 1pm.

From the Bentway's webpage, "Donations of warm winter clothing will be collected onsite by New Circles Community Services and distributed to local individuals and families who are living on a limited income. Named one of the top things to do in the GTA on New Years’ Eve, it’s a unique experience not to miss! Hop Valley Brewing Co. will be on-site with drink samples for folks 19+ too!
Polar Bear Skate Dec 31 at 12:00PM - 2:00PM"
