News Release - March 14, 2024: City of Toronto closing outdoor ice rinks this week after welcoming more than 500,000 visitors this season

The following information can be found on the interactive Drop-In Skating map:

  • Skating programs and fees (including equipment requirements and age restrictions)
Useful skating links:

Rinks are maintained by Parks, Forestry & Recreation according to a pre-determined schedule, based on the intensity of use the particular rink receives. Some rinks have dedicated on-site staff, and others have a staff rover or flying squad that maintains the ice every 4 or 8 hours.

Most arenas have permits in place for the different programs occurring at their location. For programs that do not require a permit, visit for drop-in programs (i.e. Leisure Skate and Shinny) or select Skating, Figure Skating, and Hockey Lessons to view registered instructional programs.
