Ducking below the bustling city on a cool winter night, plaza steps lead you to the warm glow of changing lights reflecting off the ice surface. The top pop hits of today pump from the venue’s speakers as you lace up, step onto the ice, and take your sweetie’s hand. Robson Square ice rink is perfect for date night in the city, family fun, or simply having a reason to smile, giggle, and take ever-so-many selfies with friends.
This free activity is one of the most popular in Vancouver at this time of year and they’re hosting a few more special events before the season wraps up at the end of February.
