Torontonians And Their Dogs Are Frolicking All Over The City’s Frozen Waters (VIDEO)
It's finally cold enough for some of Toronto's ponds, rivers and lake regions to freeze over and residents have taken note.
People have been getting their outdoor exercise by skating and sliding around on the city's frozen bodies of water over the last several weeks.
However, the fun comes with serious risks. Toronto Police Service and the City of Toronto are warning residents against venturing onto unregulated ice.
Residents have been sharing videos of themselves enjoying Toronto's natural winter landscapes, with the city's skyline in the background.
A video uploaded by Steve Hulford shows Toronto kitesurfer Julian Ganton gliding across Lake Ontario, alongside a hockey game and an adorable pup.
High Park's Grenadier Pond has been a frequent locale for skaters after freezing over in late January.
Some even took their dogs for walks on the pond.
However, the city wants residents to stay off any unregulated ice surfaces after a pair fell through the ice at High Park's Grenadier Pond and had to be rescued.
The City of Toronto is directing people to their outdoor skating rinks for all their winter exercise needs.
