Call for volunteers and update on Ice Rink condition

The weather on Sunday Feb 3, onwards did some damage to the Pearen Park Ice Rink. This Friday the 8th we will be able to repair the rink and rebuild the ice when temperatures are expected to drop to -6ยฐC in the evening.

We think the rink will be in good condition to slate on Saturday morning, but cannot be 100% sure yet.

Right now we need volunteers; please call Simon at (416) 614-3371 if you are available to help; below are the time availabilities that Simon is looking for:

Friday the 8th in the afternoon to clear a thin layer of snow

Friday evening at 7:30 PM to set-up the hoses and start flooding; the set-up only takes 30 minutes.

Friday night at 10PM to dismantle the hoses and put everything away, this should take 45 minutes.

We are also looking for confident skaters who would like to volunteer to teach children how to skate.

Thank you all! Please share.

Skating Rink Hiatus (Due to weather)

After ten days of skating (with a couple of gaps) starting January 1st , the Mount Dennis Community Rink in Pearen Park is now CLOSED for the rest of January due to mild weather.

The Rink will be rebuilt in February when (IF) we get a long-enough spell of cold weather.

The MDCA apologizes for any inconvenience.

If you are able to volunteer to help with snow shovelling, late-evening flooding, skate & helmet fitting and fastening or on-ice coaching & supervision, please email rink@mountdennisca or call 416-614-371.
