Vancouver is a fun city in the summer with free, public activities like outdoor movies and dancing in the park — and that doesn’t stop when the weather cools off. The Robson Square ice rink will be filled up and surfaced to host free ice skating once again this winter.

According to an email I received from the rink manager, Robson Square ice rink will officially open December 1, 2012 and will be in operation until February 28, 2013.

You can stop by for free ice skating all winter long between the hours of 9:00am and 9:00pm (Sunday to Thursday); 9:00am to 11:00pm (Friday and Saturday). Bring your own skates or rent a pair for $4.00 (cash only). Skate rentals close 30 minutes prior to daily rink closure.

The Robson Square ice rink is located beneath Robson street between Howe and Hornby. It is accessible via the courthouse steps on one side of Robson or the Vancouver Art Gallery steps on the other. Follow @UBCRobsonSquare on Twitter for information this season.
