This isn’t about Niagara Falls specifically, but a lot of people to visit Niagara Falls do end up travelling over to Niagara-on-the-lake.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Parks Canada thinks the outdoor skating rink at Fort George is the coolest place in town.
It certainly boasts lots to back up the claim, offering free skating seven days a week, a building with a concession stand where skates can be rented, hot chocolate and other treats to enjoy around the fire pits, chairs and bales of straw providing seating, and twinkling lights and decorated trees to contribute ambience to a great outdoors experience.
Thanks to Vintage Hotels, the skating rink has been built with chillers, so the ice will stay frozen in temperatures up to 15 degrees Celsius – it’s expected to last into March.
From a PR Web press release:
One of the cornerstones of the Niagara-in-winter experience – the TD RINK at the Brink – opens to the public for its third season on Thursday, December 1.
The TD RINK – Niagara’s answer to the iconic outdoor ice skating rinks at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto and Rockefeller Centre in New York City – is located just a snowball’s throw from the brink of the world-famous Horseshoe Falls.
The signature Niagara Falls attraction of the CAA Winter Festival of Lights, the TD RINK offers public skating, skate and locker rentals and free helmets for those who need them, as well as a skate sharpening service and group rates for holiday outings, parties, school trips and corporate team-building exercises. RINK adds yet another unique and fun family experience to the CAA Winter Festival of Lights, which is already one of the most iconic festivals in Ontario.
TD, the title sponsor of the TD RINK, has generously agreed to provide six ‘TD Free Skate Days’. ‘TD Free Skate Days’ allow members of the public to experience the TD RINK at the Brink complements of TD. Additionally, the TD Comfort Crew will be in attendance at each ‘TD Free Skate Day’ providing complementary hot chocolate and a souvenir photo.
