The Robson Square Ice Rink is located in the very heart of downtown next to the Vancouver Art Gallery and Robson Street shopping. As it is covered by a clear dome there is protection from rain but is otherwise outside, letting you feel the breeze on your face, letting you feel the energy of the city around you.

Don’t worry if you don’t have skates, you can rent them on-site. You can rent ice skates for $5; ice cleats are $2.  Other than rentals this great experience is FREE!

This is one of the very few venues actually open on Christmas Day (11am – 5pm).
