Dec 21, 2015

Skating season has returned to Toronto. Newbies and experienced skaters alike can join in the fun this winter near Metropolitan Apartments (2837 Yonge Street) with today’s blog post from Timbercreek Communities as a guide.

Lace up

Be sure you have the gear you need to feel safe and comfortable while on the ice this TC Toronto Skatingwinter. Find skates, hats, helmets, mittens and more at a nearby sports shop. There are a number in the neighbourhood to choose from. You may want to start at the nearest Sporting Life (2454 Yonge Street), just a 10-minute walk from Metropolitan Apartments.

A place to skate

Which outdoor skating rink in Toronto will you explore first? Otter Creek Centre (140 Cheritan Avenue) is an easy pick. Just a 10-minute walk or an easy two-minute drive from Metropolitan Apartments, this nearby rink is home to two outdoor ice rinks, a change room and parking.

Take your skills to the next level

Being part of a skating club is not only a great way to improve your skating skills, it is also a fun opportunity to make new friends. Silver Blades Skating Club (50 Montgomery Road) is one club in the area that offers the resources and expertise you need to increase your confidence on the ice. The club is only a 15-minute walk from Metropolitan Apartments.

A sweet finish

Following an afternoon on the ice, finish your day with a delectable cup of hot chocolate from a local bakery. Bobbette and Belle (3347 Yonge Street), a 15-minute walk or five-minute train ride from Metropolitan Apartments, has a reputation for serving some of the finest hot chocolate in Toronto. Decide for yourself by ordering a cup this winter.

It’s a known fact that Toronto loves to skate. The blog team at Timbercreek Communities hopes today’s post helps you join in the fun this winter. For more information about the exquisite Metropolitan Apartments, visit our website today.
