Feb 24 2023, 12:32 am

Winter isn’t done with Vancouver yet, with chilly temperatures in the forecast for the city this weekend.

This makes it a perfect opportunity to visit Robson Square Ice Rink, slated to wrap up its skating season on Tuesday, February 28.

Located under the covered outdoor plaza at Robson Square, the rink operates seasonally when temperatures begin to dip.

The rink has operated nearly every winter season since it reopened in late November 2009 following a $2 million repair and upgrade before the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

Robson Square Ice Rink also has an indoor skate rental and a cafe area that is currently being set up, as well as an outdoor patio with heaters.
