We started our Valentines Day a little early this year! On Friday night Sean and I went to the CityPlace rink for winter festivities at Canoe Landing Park. Snow falling in the winter can be so magical and romantic. I love the crisp winter air!
This CityPlace Social was a chance for the developer (Concord Adex) to bring the community together. Everyone who came to the social was hooked up with free hot chocolate, roses, and photo ops while skating under the moonlight. There was a great performance by Canadian National Team figure skater Michelle Long too.
The CityPlace Residents Association website details news and events in the area. They’ve got a ‘Learn to Skate’ event on Saturday February 20th, more info on that here. They’ve also got summer events like movies in the park and a farmers market.
The CityPlace Fort York BIA launched recently to help grow the community as more businesses make it their home, see what they’ve got going on via Facebook.
After the rink (and lots of photos) we had a lovely diner at Hunters Landing. Great place, good food, and we had a great server named Matt. They’ve got a special Skate & Date menu for Valentines but we just got a couple apps & pizza.
It was such a nice way to spend some quality time together doing something different in our old neighbourhood. Perfect Valentines Day!
