Calgarians making good use of the Olympic Plaza rink (PHOTOS)

Nov 21 2018, 6:07 pm

The Olympic Plaza outdoor skating rink is officially open for business, and Calgarians have flocked en masse to the popular spot.

The rink opened to the public on Saturday, November 17, and in the few short days that followed it has already been a hit among skate-clad Calgarians.

The skate rental shop has yet to open (it will be in business starting on Thursday, November 22), but that hasn’t stopped people from enjoying the ice.

Definitely a staple when it comes to wintertime activities here in YYC, the Olympic Plaza skating rink is open from 10 am to 9 pm, depending on the weather, and skates can be rented for $12, while the use of the ice is free to all comers.

We’ve put together a few photos to show you what a day on the ice looks like in the heart of downtown Calgary.
