Tim Hortons Free Holiday Skating Returns to Burlington; Household Rentals to Become Available


*Please see below a media release issued by the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont.—Nov. 25, 2020 — Tim Hortons free skating will be available to Burlington residents. Starting Dec. 20, the City of Burlington is offering 65 free Tim Hortons recreational skating.

Keeping with current Provincial and public health directives, each skate time will allow for 10 people.

Residents wanting to skate can reserve their spot(s) up to 25-hours before their preferred ice time at

“Since the Province and public health is restricting activities to only be done with household contacts, this is a great rental program for families to do something different, stretch their legs and let loose; especially as the weather turns colder. The benefits from a physical activity standpoint and what that can do for mental health could have significant benefits.” — Chris Glenn, Director of Parks and Recreation, City of Burlington

Household Rentals

With recent changes to 10 people per indoor room for gyms, ice pads and meeting rooms and 50 people per pool, the City of Burlington is now opening rentals to household families for play and recreation. As of Dec. 14, gyms and pools can be rented for one-hour and ice pads can be rented for 30-minutes.

This rental program is intended to give family households a chance for fun, physical activity and mental wellness. Regular Play Standards to provide a safe and enjoyable experience will apply.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
