It might not be a white Christmas this year but the City of Brampton has some winter activities you can enjoy this holiday season.

While warmer weather has kept the Mount Chinguacousy Ski Area closed so far this winter, Brampton opened its first outdoor ice rink of the season last Month, making it the first city in the GTA to have an outdoor rink ready for skating.

Several more outdoor rinks have since opened across the city, including a pair of new rinks. The new Boreham Park and Peel Village Park outdoor rinks opened on Dec. 2 and have added to Brampton’s stock of rinks that allow hockey and shinny play.

Here are all the outdoor skating rinks open in Brampton during the holiday season:
