With the winter season upon us for the first part of 2018 one activity that Mississauga residents can partake in, and one which is conducive to the winter weather is skating – ice skating to be exact. Not only can it be a lot of fun and a great way to get exercise (you can get your cardio in), it’s an activity that can be done by those of a myriad of ages.

One great venue is the Celebration Square Rink which can be found in downtown Mississauga (300 City Centre Dr.) and it has been deemed “one of the most unique in the GTA”. If you were not aware, skating season opened on November 25, 2017 and its final day will be March 19, 2018.

Hours of operation: 10 AM – 10:30 PM Everyday

If you don’t own a pair of skates of your own or are unable to get a pair you need not worry at all as the facility rents skates which range from size 8 in toddlers to men’s size 13, as well as for both Hockey and Figure Skating.
