After noticing a press scrum out by the icerink this afternoon, park neighbor Laura alerted us to the following icerink update.
The Toronto Star is reporting that Eleven outdoor rinks will remain open until March 16 thanks to corporation anteing up some private funds.
The city website is still reporting our Trinity Bellwoods Park icerink as closed, but the Toronto Star article is reporting it open.
Go skaters go!
Over 80 people participated in the Winter Tree Tour in our park this past Saturday. The weather, which had been utterly bonechilling in the days leading up to the tour, relaxed and it was a balmy minus 2C.

Are you interested in starting your summer plants in the greenhouse this year?
The park's community Greenhouse is run by its volunteer users. Sign up and get a shelf to grow your seedlings and share the work of watering and maintaining the soil mix. Your fellow volunteers can help you learn the basics of greenhouse use, seedling care and watering.
Are you interested in volunteering to water community seedlings?
At the Trinity Bellwoods Green House, we need people to volunteer to water community seedlings. This requires a minimum time commitment of one hour per week. You can request an AM or PM time slot on a weekday or weekend. We will train you in proper seedling care. Main seedling season startng March 15th.
If you want to get involved -- as a volunteer or to plant and nurture your own seedlings, please contact our Green House Coordinator, Elizabeth. Happy planting!
