The Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon Is Open for the Season

That’s right folks, the Skating Ribbon at Maggie Daley Park is back again for the winter season!

Starting on Friday, November 16, 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 skating rink the perfect spot for all your winter festivities in Chicago.
