Colonel Samuel Smith Skating Trail, Kipling at Lakeshore Blvd.


One of TORONTO’s newest and largest waterfront parks is located in the west end.  It’s a sanctuary for wild life of all kinds, a favourite bird-watching location, and now home to an ice skating park – par excellence.  A former power plant houses change areas, skate sharpening facility and the washrooms.  <PHOTOS – James Melvin and City of Toronto Parks>
