“Nathan Phillips Square is possibly the granddaddy of Toronto skating rinks. Overlooked by City Hall and Bay Street’s majestic skyscrapers, Nathan Phillips Square outdoor rink offers skate rental facilities, skate sharpening, a spanking new change area and a snack bar for warming up with a hot drink. Enjoy day or night skating and, if you want to do something different on Christmas Day, head over for a skating session.”
