Every year in Toronto, volunteers get together to create natural ice rinks on the city’s parkland.

According to the City of Toronto, there are usually 30 to 40 natural ice rinks built each year and each offers a great back-to-nature skating experience.

Anyone can apply to the city to build and maintain a natural ice rink, and applications are usually open in the fall. This year, applications closed on November 15, and 45 rinks were built throughout the city.

For those interested in future building, you need a minimum of 6 participating volunteers.

“Natural Ice Rink locations will only be considered for Parks, Forestry and Recreation properties with existing winter water services, flat areas with adequate drainage, and where the proposed rink is not immediately adjacent to private home owners,” states the City. “The community group will be responsible for establishing, flooding, snow removal and supervision.”

The City’s Parks Branch provides access to winter water service, water key, hoses and nozzle, two snow shovels per rink, lighting (where available), public signage and instruction on how to build and maintain a natural ice rink.

So if you missed out on building your own, try for the upcoming winter season. As for now, here are the 2017-18 approved locations.

Things to note: rink openings are weather dependent. Use at your own risk.
