The Rink at PPG Place
The beautiful outdoor rink at PPG Place in downtown Pittsburgh is open daily now through February 28. This season, tickets must be purchased online for hour-long sessions, and social distancing rules mean that there are limits on the amount of skaters permitted for each session. Tickets are $11 for ages 13-49, $10 for children 12 and under, $10 for seniors over 50 and skate rentals are $5. Check their website for special Family Night and Student Night deals, and to purchase tickets online.
From the beginning of December to mid-March (depending on the weather), the North Park Ice Skating Rink is open to the public. Because of the pandemic, certain limits and restrictions have been put in place, including the temporary closure of rink buildings, and a limit of only 50 skaters per session. Admission is $5 for Allegheny County residents and $6 for non-residents, and skate rentals are included in the admission price. Tickets must be purchased online in advance – and masks are required!
