Bentway Skate Trail
Get your skates ready! The Bentway Skate Trail will officially open to the public on Saturday, January 6 at 11 am and remain open until mid-March 2018, located under the Gardiner Expressway and Fort York National Historic Site. The Bentway located under the Gardiner Expressway was designed by Public Work and Ken Greenberg.
“This is a completely different way of looking at the Gardiner Expressway,” said Julian Sleath, CEO of Bentway Conservancy. “The team here is animating an area underneath the roadway and turning it into an urban public space for all of us to use.”
Opening weekend highlights:
Performances: Charmie Deller, Carmen Braden, and the Toronto Ice Skate Group.
Other: The Mayor’s Skate on Sunday, January, 7th from 1pm-4pm.
Free Monday night skate rentals, Beats and Bents Friday night skate parties with a rotating cast of DJs, Ice Breaking workshops and more.
