You can glide across the City of Toronto’s outdoor skating rinks this month.

Mayor John Tory announced on Thursday that 38 of the City’s outdoor rinks would open, weather permitting, on November 27. The remaining 13 rinks will open on December 4.

The outdoor rinks will be open for free leisure skate and shinny, as well as instructional programs and permits. Unlike last year, reservations for skating are not needed.

“We are doing everything we can as a city government to make sure that Toronto residents have access to safe and fun outdoor recreation this winter,” Tory said.

“Our progress fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and getting people vaccinated has allowed us to open up our outdoor ice rinks to more people and more activities, including the return of shiny.”

The outdoor rinks will be open from 9 am to 10 pm daily throughout the season. Change rooms will operate at 50% capacity, but skaters are encouraged to arrive dressed for the ice.

“I know Toronto residents are ready to jump into winter and make the most of the City’s parks and other recreational activities,” Tory said.

“I encourage people to get outside and enjoy these winter activities.”
