Rink change area: The changeroom is right next to the ice surface andi its floor-to-ceiling windows allow a clear view of the skaters. The floor is covered in rubber. The changeroom and washrooms are clean. The washrooms have rubber floors.
Staff: Mostly just the zamboni driver, who can sometimes be found way back in the control room, if you shout. There are some supervised public skating times when two rink guards are present (usually inside the building) but most of the time the skaters are left to skate on their own. This seems to work very well.
Maintenance: Good. There are 14 ice maintenance shifts a week.
Free shinny-hockey and pleasure-skating hours:
Free Pleasure-skating: Available a total of 8 hours a week (supervised), 77 hours (unsupervised), during prime time.
Shinny hockey: A City sign says "NO SHINNY HOCKEY" but there are kids playing shinny at one end anyway. Plus there's parent-child shinny on weekend mornings.
*prime time means after 4pm weekdays and all day on weekends

At 10 a.m. this rink had excellent ice. Two kids out on the ice with shinny equipment, two more changing inside the change room. There was no "opening date" sign anywhere, but the bulletin board did have other hand-lettered, useful signs.
The metal City of Toronto sign says no shinny, ever, but the local sign reflects actual usage, and compromise.
From rink user Raf Lewis:
This long, narrow rink was built for pleasure-skating, but by tacit consent, one end of the rink is often used for kids' shinny hockey. The change room is dramatic in its architecture, as are most of the North York rinks.
