Join the Sorauren Rink build this Saturday

Now that we finally have some decent weather, preparations are being made for the volunteer-powered Sorauren Park natural ice rink.

You can help this Saturday morning, Jan. 10, starting at 9 a.m. on the baseball diamond. The Sorauren Hosers are looking for volunteers to help install the boards (last year’s innovation) and start flooding. The Hosers make two interconnected pads, one for shinny and one for pleasure skating.

Especially needed are folks handy with cordless drill-drivers (please bring your charged-up tools) and hammers, but all hands are helpful. We install simple 8”-high boards to keep in the water (see photo above).

The Hosers also need volunteers to help flood. A two- or three-person crew floods every night at 9 p.m., weather permitting. Volunteers typically pick one night per week to join that evening’s crew. We match up experienced Hosers with newcomers.

Please contact us if you’d like to join the elite crew that, according to, maintains one of the Top 5 Natural Ice Rinks in Toronto! (Yes, that’s Sorauren Park in their photo.)
