Skating at Harbourfront Center

At Harbourfront Center, everything you ask for is there--within distance: restaurants, cafes, shopping, art gallery, cinemas, etc...

There are over 100 skating classes in Harbourfront Center Natrel Rink for kids, teens and adults-beginner to pro!

The Natrel Rink is, perhaps, the most perfect place to skate in Toronto. The rink is spacious and it's just meters away from Lake Ontario. On a sunny afternoon, the sunset is a magnificent vista that serves as a backdrop of children, teens and adults skating through the ice while music is playing in the air!
