The temporary ice rink is open daily through January 8, 2018, except on Christmas Day.

“Federal Hill Commons was designed to be a year-round park, so we are happy to offer this winter activity for people to enjoy this great downtown asset and we know the excitement for ice skating has grown as the rink has been constructed during the past two weeks,” Mayor John Ditslear said.

From today through December 24, Ice Plaza hours will be 3 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday. After Christmas, hours will be extended for enjoyment during winter break.
