This is when Toronto's free outdoor skating rinks are opening for the season

Ice skating rinks in Toronto are about to open around the city.

It was just announced that outdoor skating rinks will open on Nov. 27, weather permitting with some opening next month on Dec. 4. The general hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. with the season ending on Mar. 20, 2022.

Unlike last year, there is no need for reservations in order to skate at one of the rinks. Masks are also not required while skating but are required when in indoor public spaces such as the washrooms.

Make sure you check the status of the outdoor rink to see if it's open or not since rinks may be closed due to weather.
