Toronto's scenic outdoor waterfront skating rink opens next month

Whether you live in the city or you’re visiting from out of town, skating at the Harbourfront Natrel rink is a quintessential winter activity.

And if the chilly temperatures we’ve experienced lately stick around, the rink will be opening up very soon.

According to the Harbourfront Centre, the Natrel Rink is set to open up on Friday, November 16. This is (of course) weather permitting, so let’s hope this cold weather sticks around.

The rink is complete with heated indoor change rooms and its own rink-side bar and grill for those interested in getting a post-skate snack.

The best part? Skating at the Harbourfront rink is totally free. 

Don’t have skates? No problem.  The rink offers affordable rentals in its Skate Change Room, located beside the Natrel Rink.

Starting in December, the Natrel Rink will also host weekend DJ skate nights for those who want to combine skating and clubbing.

While there are plenty of skating rinks located in the city, Queen’s Quay easily offers up some of the most beautiful views of the city, and skating with a view of the lake and the city skyline is definitely a great way to spend a winter day (or night).
