Let’s go ice skating with TAP @Maggie Daley Ice Skating Ribbon on Saturday, January 20th! Admission is free. Rental charge for ice skates is $14 or feel free to bring your own. The Maggie Daley Ice Skating Ribbon is located in the heart of downtown Chicago near Millennium Park.
About Skating Ribbon:
The skating ribbon is dramatically different from typical civic ice rinks, creating a multisensory activity that is integrated into the landscape. Skaters can experience “alpine in the city” as they lace up their ice skates and follow a path twice the length of a lap around a traditional skating rink. Complementing the ribbon are places to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and rent skates. In the summertime, the Ribbon can be used to watch climbers on the climbing wall.
•Parking: Available at Millennium Lakeside Garages
•Skate sizes available are child’s size 8 through men’s size 13. Figure and hockey skates available.
•Locker space is available for bag storage.
Please refer to the Maggie Daley Park official website:
