The annual event has become a tradition that helps welcome the holiday season in the 604.

Admission and Pricing

Skating is free for all ages. Those who own their own skates are welcome to use them. Skate rentals are $4, and rentals end 30 minutes before closing time.

Furthermore, helmets are mandatory for children 12 and under. Robson Square Ice Rink will offer rentals and accept cash only.


The ice rink will welcome skaters daily from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. through 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

It’s important to note that the Robson Square Ice Rink is not a full-size rink. With that being said, the attraction is highly popular and therefore very crowded in the evenings.

All skill levels are welcome!
