Skating & Rinks

Outdoor Rinks

Grab your skates, hit the ice and spend some time with your family and friends at a skating rink. There are 50 City of Toronto outdoor artificial ice rink locations, with an extended 2015/2016 season at 35 locations. Each year dozens of community-run natural ice rinks are also built across the city with help from Parks staff.

Four City rink locations feature skating trails. Greenwood Park has a 215-metre trail that winds around a beautiful landscaped area, Colonel Samuel Smith Park has a 250-metre trail in the shape of a figure eight that offers great views of Lake Ontario, and Dieppe Park and Rennie Park both feature landscaped skating paths.

General hours of operation for City-run outdoor rinks are 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, seven days a week. Hours vary at each location so to help plan for your skating visit, please click on the facility name in the table below for program information. For a complete listing at all facilities please use this list of drop-in skating programs.

Where available, washroom and change rooms are open during regular operating hours and may be closed during holiday periods. The seasonal open and close dates are weather permitting and may change.
