If you are one of the people who can’t go a season without donning your blades, or if you’ve yet to see your little tots take to the ice with that unique kid bravery, your chance is coming.

The city has many indoor and outdoor ice rinks and ice trails open for recreational skating. The city aims to have its outdoor ice rinks and ice trails open on December 1, by which time there are more consistent colder temperatures to support ice.

And if you’d like to be coached by professionals as you, and even your little ones, take to the ice, the city provides a variety of programs at many locations. See below for more information.

Here’s a line-up of outdoor ice rinks and ice trails, and indoor ice rinks.
