Even though it’s only been around for a couple of years, The Shipyards Skate Plaza in North Van has become a must-visit for anyone looking to get a few strides in over the winter. After all, not only is it the largest outdoor ice skating surface in the region, but it also offers a ton of nearby amenities to enjoy. Oh, and it’s free to access!

And now, the official reopening date for the 2022/2023 season has been set.
