Starting on Friday, November 17th, skaters both young and old can head to Maggie Daley Park for an ice experience like none other. Billed as “the alpine in the city,” the Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon curves throughout the park’s rolling landscape, offering its visitors a track twice the length of your average ice rink with unreal skyline views. In addition to the rink itself, a number of hot chocolate stands also dot the track, making this skate rink the perfect spot for all your winter festivities in Chicago.



Admission to the skating ribbon is FREE!

Skate Rentals are $12 Monday – Thursday and $14 on weekends. $40 will get you a line-skipping fast pass, a locker and a pair of skates. $90 will get you two fast passes, two lockers, and two pairs of skates PLUS hot chocolate.
