Skating Under Robson…Again

In 2000 the outdoor ice rink at Robson Square closed down. It had been in operation since 1982 but with a lack of funding and other speculated issues it hasn’t been operational since that time. In the winter of 2008, GE has stepped up as a sponsor to get this going again, in the spirit of the 2010 games.

The sponsoring agreement with the multinational American conglomerate means the ice rink at Robson Square should be back in operation by the winter of 2008.


The GE brand presence at Robson Square will expire in 2010 unless the corporate giant renews its sponsoring agreement. [The Vancouver Sun]

I LOVE ice skating but I’m unsure if or when I’ll be able to get over there during a lunch break and it will more than likely be crowded with tourists that flow over from Robson Street above. Regardless, I’m looking forward to seeing the rink in action again.

    I never knew it was actually operational until 2000. I would definitely be snapping some photos in 2008.
