City Ice Pavilion gives ice-capaders a chance to spend a day skating on a well-maintained, NHL–size rink. During the Pavilion's public-skate schedule, skating novices and grizzled ice-slicers alike can practice their triple axel, flawlessly perform a butterfly jump, or fantasize about drilling a slap shot right past their goateed evil twin. The City Ice Pavilion is open year-round and easily accessible, just two blocks from the 33rd Street – Rawson Street station. Parking is also free for cars and oversize bobsleds.
