If you’re looking for a Christmas Day activity, aside from lounging in pyjamas as long as possible until the aroma of roasted turkey fills the house, there are actually quite a few local options this year:

Robson Square Skating Rink

What’s Open on Christmas Day in Vancouver

The Vancouver Aquarium is open (11:30am to 4:00pm) featuring their holiday line-up of activities on top of their permanent displays and exhibits. Watch Scuba Claus swim around (after his long night of travel), check out the Eel-ectric Lights show, and catch The Polar Express 4-D Experience.

The Robson Square ice rink in Downtown Vancouver will be open (12:00pm to 5:00pm) with free skating, and $4 rentals.

There’s still time to check out SOS Children’s Gingerbread Village at The Peak of Christmas on Grouse Mountain. Head up for a Christmas Day walk in the snow, skiing & snowboarding, ice skating, sliding, and the gingerbread houses inside the main lodge.

Cypress and Mount Seymour will also be open for downhill fun on Christmas Day.

Book a tee time! Vancouver Parks Golf courses – Fraserview, Langara, and McCleery – will be open on Christmas Day from 8:00am to 2:00pm.

Indoor ice skating can be enjoyed at several Vancouver Park Board rinks. There will be public skates on Christmas Day at Hillcrest, Britannia, Trout Lake and Kerrisdale arenas.

If you are out and about, plan to grab a Legendary Burger or Pirate Pak at the White Spot Christmas Luncheon for Charity. Now in its 14th year, staff at the Kingsway and Richmond Centre locations are donating their time and tips of Christmas Day for two deserving local causes.
