Skating trail, anyone? Etobicoke's got one!

Last year, I took some good photos of Colonel Sam Skating Trail. This is my favourite rink in all Toronto. 

It took me 350 steps to walk around its 8-figure shape trail by an historic building with a tall chimney. It includes an indoor changing room and has a Zamboni to smooth the ice. It is open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Humber College uses the Victorian buildings which hosted a psychiatric hospital in a previous life. You can get a hot chocolate at the Tim Hortons on the campus nearby. (Take the path east of the rink and walk northbound.)

There's also Tatsu's Bread, the artisanal bakery just off the campus at 3180 Lake Shore, serving great treats and light meals.
