Skating legal on Grenadier Pond for first time since 2001
For the first time in what seems like forever, it'll be legal to skate on Grenadier Pond in High Park.
Yesterday, as the Toronto Star reports, city councillors voted to implement a daily ice testing program for the natural rink. The city will also be placing coloured flags around the pond to warn skaters about when it's unsafe to hop on the ice.
City Council approved $25,000 in yearly funding for the project. However, as the Star notes, city staff say there will likely be only five to ten safe skating days all winter.
Do you think it's a good idea to allow skating on Grenadier Pond? Let us know in the comments.
