Free skating at the Robson Square rink officially returns next week
The Robson Square Ice Rink is expected to reopen on Thursday, December 2 for the 2020/21 season.
Located under the covered outdoor plaza of Robson Square, the rink operates seasonally when temperatures start to drop.
The rink has operated almost every winter season since it reopened in late November 2009 after a $ 2 million repair and upgrade prior to the 2010 Winter Olympics. Prior to the renovation, the rink was closed for almost a decade.
The ice rink also has indoor skate rental and a cafÃ© area under development, as well as an outdoor patio with heaters. There will also be live music performances from December 13 to 24, as part of the 12 Days of Christmas lineup.
Skating is free for all ages for those who bring their own skates. Those without skates can rent them on site for an additional charge, and a helmet is mandatory for anyone under 12 years old.
The Robson Square Ice Rink will operate Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. (holiday hours may vary).
