Maggie Daley Park Skating Ribbon


Come and skate the quarter mile Alpine inspired ice-skating ribbon, while taking in the magnificent views of the Chicago Skyline. Masks and reservations required.

November 20th 2020 – February 28th 2021

The skating ribbon is dramatically different from typical civic ice rinks, creating a multisensory activity that is integrated into the landscape. Skaters can experience “alpine in the city” as they lace up their ice skates and follow a path twice the length of a lap around a traditional skating rink. Complementing the ribbon are places to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and rent skates. In the heart of the Chicago Loop, with the city’s skyline as a backdrop, a ribbon of ice winds through a rolling landscape, providing an ice skating experience unlike any other. The Ice-Skating Ribbon will be RESERVATION ONLY – due to COVID-19, and a limited number of skaters will be allowed on the ribbon at any given time.

Once you arrive at the park, check-in at the Randolph St. entrance towards the west side of the park. This is part of Maggie Daley Park's new COVID Safety Protocols. After checking in you will be directed to Entrance A or B where you will get your skates and leave your belongings. The entire check-in, skate rental and belonging drop off process will take place outdoors this year. Masks are required at all times in the park.

Reservations open November 11, and are required for those using their own skates or renting.
