The infamous ice rink at Robson Square will open just in time for the holidays on December 1st.

The ice rink is the perfect place to be, whether you’re looking to brush up on your skating skills or just want to enjoy a fun and festive activity outdoors this holiday season.

The rink is open 9am to 9pm Sundays through Thursdays and 9am to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Enjoy Vancouvers favourite Winter tradition with friends or family, and it’s the perfect spot for a date night.

Visit the concession stand for delicious snacks and warm drinks.

Skate rentals are available at the rink for $4.

Rentals end 30 minutes prior to closing time. Helmets are mandatory for children 12 and under.

To add another element of magic this year, the annual Vancouver Christmas Tree Lighting will now take place in Robson Square. The event is usually held at Jack Poole Plaza but the relocation will make the ambience around the ice rink even more festive for the holiday season.
