Sorauren Rink closed for season

As if a switch was flipped with an overnight thunderclap, winter signalled its exit and spring its arrival, and with that change the Sorauren natural ice rink has closed for this season.

(Who are we kidding, winter will return in some way. But with the sun higher and thaws longer it becomes impossible to maintain the ice surface.)

Big thanks to the 40 volunteer crew members of the hardy Sorauren Hosers, and many other helpers, who maintained the rink with daily floodings and more. (Many Hosers have been volunteering for more than 10 years.) Overall it has been a great season, made more special as the second year of outdoor relief from the pandemic.

Thanks also to Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation for late-night and early-morning staff support and access to the hoses and water. Finally, thanks to sponsors Chander Chaddah, Scooter Girl Toys and Evolve Chiropratic Roncesvalles, whose financial support helps cover rink expenses.

The Sorauren Hosers Rink Crew is a program of the Friends of Sorauren Park, which is planning a great season of warm-weather programming; stay tuned. See you at the rink next year!
