Experience the magic of one of the best skating rinks in Toronto at Evergreen Brick Works.

The Evergreen Brick Works outdoor skating rink weaves through snow-covered gardens under exposed beams from the roof of the old brick factory. When the sun goes down the twinkling lights come on, creating a magical experience under a blanket of stars.

There's truly no other skating rink like it in the city, especially since it features an ECO CHILL® refrigeration system for sustainable cooling.

The skating rink is only open during the winter season. It will reopen to the public in December 2018, weather permitting.
