Found ourselves downtown after a school event and decided to try the rink for something different. While the kids had been ice skating many times before and didn't seem all that impressed as anything different at the time, months later, when. we took other friends through the city, they eagerly recounted their experience as something memorable. They explained to their... More

Visited on Christmas and saw the trains and Christmas Around the World displays, as well as the tree and skating in the plaza. The buildings are striking and there are often neat displays or presentations going on. Also Starbucks nearby and a number of places to eat.

Visitors are drawn to the Glass Castle. A stunning building that seem to sprawl across half a block. The fountain area is currently under construction and seems to detract from the overall appearance of this eye-catching building. The fountain, not the construction, is the eyesore. Ugly!

This building is very interesting (and shiny), and the surrounding area of downtown is nice, too. There are lots of restaurants nearby, and an ice rink in the winter.

For me, it had been over 30 years since I last ice skated and for my daughter, it was her first time ever. We skated six times, this year, at this rink and loved every minute of it. Sure, it had its moments of waiting in line during the holidays and cramped rental quarters, but my daughter and I made... More

We went on a Saturday in January when the temperature was in the 40's. We parked in a nearby garage and only paid $5. We got there a little after opening at 11am, and it was not crowded yet. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to skate for a while, leave for lunch in Market Square, and... More

We bought a deluxe birthday party package and were told that we would have the room for one hour and a half. They booked our party for 11 AM when the rink just opens. So, of course, the first 10 minutes of the party was eaten up by everything opening and other people in line waiting to get their skates.... More

Loved the PPG tree and ice rink! Was a great stop in our holiday trip. Next year we hope to see the exhibits inside as well!

Since moving to the Pittsburgh area I have always wanted to skate at the PPG rink. Today was the day. We took our two young kids downtown, there are a few parking lots within a blocks walk to the rink and also some on street, pay parking close by. If you are driving a truck and cannot find on street... More
