The Bentway Skate Trail

Friday, December 21, 2018 - Monday, February 18, 2019

The Bentway’s unique figure-eight skate trail opens for its second season on December 21, 2018. Just in time for the holidays!

Skate rentals and skating lessons will be offered again this year, there will be curated food and beverage options on select dates, and an expanded winter village full of snuggly blankets, warming lounges, and fire pits. The fall season public art exhibition, If, But, What If?, will also be extended through winter.

Last winter, more than 50,000 visitors came down and skated, shared memories, hung out, and helped to make The Bentway Skate Trail Toronto’s coolest ice.

“Who would want to hang out under an expressway? Lots of Torontonians, apparently,” declared Alex Bozikovic, Architecture Critic for The Globe and Mail. “In praise of The Bentway,” began a Toronto Star editorial. “It’s very Canadian,” proclaimed the CBC.

Come on out and experience Toronto’s coolest figure-eight skate trail for yourself! On December 21-23, 2018 join us and ‘Skate the 8 in the Six!’

The full season runs until February 18.
