Skating at Life

Our ice rink is closed for the season and will return in November 2017. Please check back soon for more information.

Put your party plans on ice! Times Square is home to the region’s favourite open air ice rink. Why not hire it for an exclusive party?


Companies can sponsor our ice rink to receive a range of exclusive benefits. Advertising space is also available.

Make your skating party complete with some festive food extras. You don’t even have to take your skates off! Relax and warm up with a variety of refreshments from delicious hot chocolate and scrummy sandwiches to a full buffet – all served rink-side in the marquee.
