Aurora Winter Festival Vancouver - Tim Hortons Skating Pond

New this year: A second Family Skating Pond has been created for exclusive use for families with new, young skaters.

The skating surface is a synthetic material that uses cutting edge technology for the best gliding sensation. It also offers significant energy savings over traditional ice rinks, and requires less maintenance.

The Skating Ponds have no additional cost, but skates are required. Bring your own, or rent ours from the Skate Shack for $6.

*Helmets are required for people 8 and younger, and available for FREE for all guests. **Skating aids are available on site if required.
