Free ice skating in Robson Square is a magical Vancouver Christmas tradition. The Robson Square ice rink opens Monday, December 1, 2014 and will stay open through February 28, 2015. Round up friends, kids, a date–basically anyone who will hold hands and/or dust off your bum when you topple–and head on over.
Unlike Kitsilano Ice Rink (2690 Larch Street), the Robson Square rink is outdoors and free if you BYOS (bring your own skates). Skate and helmet rentals are available for $4. Ice cleats are $2. It may be worth buying a pair of ice skates if you plan on visiting several times.
The rink is open 9:00am to 9:00pm Sunday to Thursday and 9am to 11pm Friday and Saturday. Holiday hours are slightly different, so you’ll want to check. It is open from noon to 5pm on Christmas day if you’re in need of physical activity after the annual wrapping paper shredding.
