Sherbourne Common Ice Pad
The Sherbourne Common ice rink is now open for the skating season. Located within the south side of the park, the 920 square metre skating rink provides beautiful waterfront views of Lake Ontario and the downtown skyline.
We discovered this stunning waterfront park last summer (click here to read our feature). At the time, we enjoyed the splash pad, which doubles as a skating rink in the Winter.
A seating wall surrounds the eastern and western edge of the rink to give skaters ample space to lace up. The park’s pavilion also has washrooms.
The Sherbourne Common ice rink is one of 53 operated by the City of Toronto’s Parks, Forestry, and Recreation Department. It is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00AM to 10:00PM and from 10:00AM to 6:00PM on Sunday until the season ends in late February 2013.
This new outdoor ice rink is located at 61 Dockside Drive – south of Queens Quay Boulevard and east of Lower Sherbourne Street. To access the rink by TTC, skaters may take the 6 Bay bus from Union Station or the 75 Sherbourne bus. There is an underground public parking garage at George Brown College and a surface parking lot in front of Corus Quay (at Dockside Drive and Queens Quay Boulevard). There is limited parking on neighbouring streets.
Since the public skate schedule is weather dependant, it can change on short notice. Check the Toronto outdoor rink open/close status for daily updates. Admission to the rink is free.
