The Sorauren natural ice rink is now open for pleasure skating, with fair ice conditions. Be aware that some bumps are still poking through the ice, so shinny is not yet feasible. But not bad for skating with bundled-up little ones. Please practice COVID safety by staying physically distanced and wear masks; pandemic safety signs are posted.
The all-volunteer Sorauren Hosers Rink Crew continues to flood every night at 9 pm, with additional shifts at 7 am on weekends and when possible. Conditions will improve in the weeks ahead.
Toronto Life recently featured Sorauren Rink along with four other neighbourhood-run natural ice rinks in an article about how rinks affect their communities. “[T]he value of the rink goes way beyond the ice. It brings the whole neighbourhood together,” said Joël Campbell, chair of Friends of Sorauren Park and a veteran Hoser.
