In the heart of downtown Vancouver, nestled within the expansive Robson Square complex, lies a beloved winter attraction that draws locals and visitors alike – the Robson Square Ice Rink.

Surrounded by iconic landmarks such as the Provincial law courts and the Vancouver Art Gallery, this outdoor rink offers a nostalgic and festive experience for all who visit.

A Winter Wonderland in the City

Robson Square transforms into a winter wonderland, inviting skaters of all ages to lace up their boots and hit the ice. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a novice, there's something magical about gliding across the ice in the heart of downtown Vancouver. It's a cherished tradition for families, friends, and couples seeking a memorable winter outing.

Safety First

Before stepping onto the ice, safety is paramount. Helmets are strongly recommended for all skaters and are mandatory for children 12 years and under. To ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment, the rink enforces rules such as forward skating only, no reckless skating, and no carrying of children or infants on the ice. These measures ensure that everyone can enjoy their time on the ice without worry.

Schools Programs

The Robson Square Ice Rink is more than just a recreational facility – it's a hub for community engagement and education. Through their Schools Program, Grade 4 to 7 classes from across British Columbia have the opportunity to participate in free skating sessions, complete with complimentary skate rentals and helmets.

Additionally, students can sign up for free skating lessons, where experienced instructors teach basic skating skills and safety tips. It's a wonderful opportunity for students to embrace winter sports and learn valuable life skills in a fun and supportive environment.

Venue Rental

Beyond the winter season, Robson Square offers its versatile spaces for rent, perfect for hosting events and activities. From corporate functions to community gatherings, the plaza provides a picturesque backdrop for any occasion. However, it's important to note that during the ice season, the rink and plaza cannot be rented for private events, ensuring that everyone can enjoy the magic of winter skating.
