The Bentway Skate Trail is set to open under the Gardiner next week for some winter fun and free skating this season.
On December 18, the skating trail will be opened with a fixed capacity of 25 people. You can pre-register for entry via Eventbrite starting December 12 at 10 am.
In line with health guidelines, this winter skating experience will be keeping safety a main priority, ensuring that they are adhering to both the City’s and Ontario’s health regulations and recommendations.
Though the trail is free to skate on, The Bentway is asking for donations for those in need, offering Winter Care Kits for those experiencing poverty and homelessness in the city.
Donations can be made through Eventbrite at the time of registration.
At this time, there are no skate rentals so you must bring your own, and it’s recommended that skaters dress appropriately for the weather with a mask too!
Make sure to bring your ID for verification purposes and to maintain 2 metres of distance from others.
“Stay home if you are feeling sick, have been out of the country in the last 14 days, or suspect you may have come into contact with COVID-19,” said The Bentway.
If slots are full, don’t worry. Every Saturday at 10 am, timeslots for the week after will be available.
If you still don’t have any luck, Toronto has a bunch of skating rinks and trails that you can check out this winter season.
Don’t forget to register!
