Since its re-opening for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, theÂ Robson Square Ice RinkÂ (located at 800 Robson Street, across from theÂ Vancouver Art Gallery) has reclaimed its spot as a beloved Vancouver winter tradition. The open-air ice rink is one of the only spots for outdoor ice skating in Vancouver, and itâ€™s completelyÂ free!
Weather permitting, the Robson Square Ice Rinkâ€™s 2011 grand opening will beÂ December 1, 2011.
Ice skaters can enjoy the rink from 9am â€“ 9pm Sunday â€“ Thursday, and from 9am â€“ 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Though the rink is open-air, itâ€™s covered by a clear dome, so you can enjoy the downtown lights while still being protected from the rain. Skating is free; skate rentals are $4, helmets and ice cleats are $2.
Skate your heart out at downtown Vancouverâ€™sÂ freeÂ Robson Square Ice Rink fromÂ December 1, 2011 â€“ February 29, 2012
