Harbourfront Centre’s picturesque skating rink is now closed for the season!

TORONTO, ON (March 12, 2012) – Harbourfront Centre's fun-filled SKATE CULTURE season on the Natrel® Rink has come to a close. Due to the unseasonably warm weather, the Natrel Rink closed this past weekend and will remain closed until November 2012.

Over the winter months, the Natrel® Rink was the hub for all SKATE CULTURE activities at Harbourfront Centre - hosting to more than 150,000 visitors on one of the largest and most popular outdoor rinks in the city!

Popular SKATE CULTURE events held this past winter included 10 DJ Skate Nights featuring the best spin-masters in Toronto, hundreds of Learn to Skate lessons and a fun-filled family day weekend with HarbourKIDS: SK8. Patrons also had the opportunity to get cozy in our new lounge area inside the Lakeside Eats restaurant, play board games, watch movies and sporting events—all while enjoying delicious food, gourmet coffee and hot chocolate in between skate time!

Although the winter fun at Harbourfront Centre has come to an end, the spring/summer season is gearing up with an array of festivals and events including World Stage, Next Steps, Authorsat Harbourfront Centre, Visual Arts, Courses & Workshops and the ever-popular Summer Festival season! There is always something to do at Harbourfront Centre, so be sure to visit often!
