GE Plaza (Robson Square)
CLOSED GE Plaza at Robson Square features a popular outdoor skating rink, and is the location for the International Media Centre and BC Pavilion during the Games and centrally located at Robson & Howe Streets. Thanks to the generous contribution from General Electric in partnership with the Province of BC, the skating is free and skate rentals are only $3. The rink is open daily from noon to 9 pm.
The revitalization of the ice rink at GE Plaza has brought over 115,000 visitors to Robson Square to enjoy ice skating, concerts, and other special events since it re-opened in late November. Robson Square is the BC’s signature celebration site during the 2010 Winter Games. Live music performances are taking place day and night at this lively centre of activity. The nightly fireworks display are a must see. Check out this video. Just look for the big glass bubbles from street level.
The site is just a 2-minute walk from the Vancouver City Centre Skytrain and Canada Line stations. Click here for directions on how to get there. Check out Daniel's review of this venue by clicking here.
