Today’s question comes from a reader asking about winter activities!

Are there outdoor skating rinks in Mississauga?

Mississauga has many outdoor skating rinks including three outdoor artificial ice rinks listed below and 30 natural ice rinks organized and maintained by neighbourhood volunteers. The rinks are open daily, weather permitting.

There are also 30 natural ice rinks in the city that are free and are opened from sunrise to 11 p.m. These rinks are maintained by volunteers so conditions are subject to weather and volunteer man power. For the list of natural ice rinks, those can be found here.
