Thanks to the efforts of the all-volunteer Sorauren Park Hosers rink crew, the natural ice rink is now open for pleasure skating (east pad) and shinny (west pad).
Conditions are a little bumpy, especially in the corners, so skate with care. Skating will help improve the surface, as will the many floods to come with this excellent weather. UPDATE: Conditions now good to excellent with repeat flooding and a polar vortex. Dress warm.
Remember the rink closes at 9 p.m. every evening for flooding.
Grab a shovel or bring your shovel if it’s snowing to help keep the rink clear.
Thanks to this year’s rink sponsors:
Sponsor funding permitted the purchase of new, sturdier rink boards to replace the old plywood. Thanks also to Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation for water, scrapers, equipment storage.
