There's nothing like outdoor skating
A project of CELOS (*)
Opened: Nov. 30, 2013, or early December
Closed: Feb. 23, 2014
Rink change area: Changerooms used to only be open if a city worker is on the site, but now they are open all day until sometime in the evening -- even if no city worker is on site.
Staff: The sign put up by the City says the rink is unsupervised.
Maintenance: Usually two floods a day, one in the morning, one at night -- flying squad. Rink users bring their own shovels from home as well. This is the most popular of the "minor" Etobicoke outdoor rinks.
Public Skating and open shinny hockey:
Free Pleasure-skating: Available a total of 35 hours a week
Free Shinny hockey: Available a total of 27 hours a week.
Shared use (shinny and leisure skating together): Monday - Friday 9am - 4pm. Shinny only: Tuesday and Thursday 4pm to close, all day Saturday.

Morning: Good ice, no signage about the date of opening.
Evening, from rink user Eric HM: It's a small pad and there were at least 35 people there, mostly teens and young adults and the shinny was very fast, a couple of younger kids showed and up at one point there were 6 kids playing in a corner.
The Ice was really bumpy and was also torn up and had a lot of snow from heavy use. The south end of the rink was a little thin, though not through to the concrete. To everyone's disappointment, the lights turned off about 10:15, rather than the posted 11pm. The younger kids and a few parents stayed to play after the lights were off, since they finally had the whole rink to themselves.
