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

If you are in Pittsburgh for the holidays, you must visit the ppg ice rink and winter garden. The tents at market square are a block away. The view is one of a kind.

We went ice skating at PPG Place last Sat. the weather was perfect, the girls aged 11 had a great time, it was $10 each including skate rental. You can leave and return as many times as you want throughout the day as long as you keep your wrist band on. You have to return the skates to get your... More

Visited on a Sunday. Gorgeous scenery. The buildings are just breathtaking! Great for photos. Something about ice skating outside around the Christmas tree makes it magical! Pros: lots to see & do. Gingerbread display & santa exhibit free.verity of places to eat. Cons: ice skates are a bit worn so wear thick socks! We will go back & would recommend... More

What a wonderful tradition to make during the holidays. Ice skating at PPG place is a special activity, and a lovely Pittsburgh treat. Surrounded by the beautiful, castle-like architecture of PPG Place, you skate in circles around the giant Christmas tree. This rink gets crowded on weekends during December, so expect to wait in line during peak times. The rink... More
