North Vancouver’s impressive 12,000 square foot skating rink in The Shipyards is set to open again this December and it’s free for all.

Skate Plaza will officially open as of Friday, December 1, from 1-8 pm daily, and will remain open until early next year.

Skate rentals are $7 for adults and $5 for kids. Helmets and skating aids are free. Those with their own skates skate for free. They also launched a new rental process this year to streamline the process.

The massive rink features a powerful sound system and colourful lighting.

“You can see the skyline of the city in the background and all of these commercial amenities immediately accessible – it’s just absolutely spectacular. It’s unlike any other skating rink in Vancouver,” said City of North Vancouver shipyards and waterfront manager Lino Siracusa to North Shore News.

The building has a retractable roof, so people can enjoy the skylights – or the rain. It also has little islands on the ice to weave around.

The rink is open everyday, except Christmas Day. They are also closed daily for ice cleaning at 3:00pm and 5:30pm for approximately 30 minutes.

The rink is also available for Private rentals from Thursdays through Sunday for 60 mins during selected times.
