The holiday season doesn’t really start until you’ve had your first magical winter ice skating experience.
If you’ve been looking for the perfect place to lace up your skates and get on the ice, look no further. From today to Sunday, January 5, The Bentway Skate Trail is transforming into an urban winter wonderland featuring a cozy Quaker Lounge with free oat-based snacks.
It’s not every day that you get the chance to ice skate along a 220-metre figure-eight trail underneath the Gardiner Expressway and spend time in an adjacent winter village. When it comes to warming up, there’s only one place to go for some delicious bites — the Quaker Lounge.
In Canada, most of us grew up enjoying oats, and it’s no surprise since the Quaker brand has been serving up goodness for over a century. Now, this winter, Quaker wants to help you stay warm, cozy, and snacking on scrumptious oat-based treats. Think Apple-Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies and Cocoa Banana Mini Muffins (yum!).
Since oats are a source of energy and fibre, they make the perfect snack before an action-packed day on the ice. And we all know that channelling your inner figure skater requires energy.
Featuring everything from warm fire pits and cozy couches, to an Instagram-worthy photo corner, and fun games for the whole family, this is a holiday spot not to miss!
Simply choose the date you want to go ice skating at The Bentway, round up your favourite people, and get ready to savour all of the aforementioned delightful snacks — for free.
If you want to bring the cozy feeling of the Quaker Lounge home with you, simply harness the wholesome goodness of Quaker Oats (made with 100% whole grain oats) by adding them to one of your favourite recipes. Oatmeal cookies, cinnamon apple crumble, Santa’s stockings — you name it and Quaker has a recipe to make it.

PS: Don’t worry if you can’t skate because there will be free recurring lessons for kids and adults at The Bentway Skate Trail this season. See you on the ice!
