ryerson outdoor skating rink

This hidden skating pond is just steps from Toronto's busiest intersection

Did you know that there's a hidden skating pond in one of the busiest areas of the city? Lace up.

From the free rink at the Downsview Airport Lands to the skating trail at The Bentway, there are a ton of places to glide on ice and the city just got another one steps away from one of Toronto's busiest intersections.

The Toronto Metropolitan University Square rink is located on the TMU campus and is the perfect place to skate when you're taking a break from class.

Unlike other outdoor rinks like Nathan Phillips Square there are no skate rentals available so you'll have to bring your own pair.

If you're looking for a place to brush up on your skills, then this is the rink to go to since it's quietly nestled in the university campus and not as busy as other downtown rinks.

The outdoor rink is unsupervised but skate times for the rink are 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily until Feb. 25, weather permitting.
