Dufferin Rink season
Dufferin Rink opened on November 23. It's one of 53 municipal outdoor rinks (cooled by compressors) in Toronto -- more than any city in the world.
See the schedule for details.''

Friday Night Suppers
From 6 (ish) to 7.30 There is always soup, a vegetarian or vegan entrée, a meat entrée, a side dish, a salad, and dessert. Although the money all goes back directly to the City now, prices listed are still only a suggested donation. If you can’t spare the cash, donate at some other time – nobody goes away hungry! (Of course, if you feel like donating more than the suggested amount, that’s fine too.) Click here for this Friday's menu.
There are three small-group campfire locations – centre path, south path, and beside the rink. The centre path fire circle is in the middle of the park, and the south path fire circle is beside the cob courtyard. The park’s recreation staff book the cooking fire times. They also give fire safety training and are available to help start/end your fire. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, Read more >>
