From November 17 through February 25, the Plaza between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue transforms into the
MassMutual Pittsburgh Ice Rink at PPG Place, a spectacular one-of-a-kind outdoor ice skating rink.

The ice rink first opened in December 2001.
Highwoods Properties purchased PPG Place in September, 2011.

The rink was replaced with a new larger ice rink for the 2015-16 season.

  • The $1 Million ice rink is 116′ x 116′ – 25% larger than original rink.
  • The  rink is 67% larger than the Rockefeller Center ice rink.
  • 700 pairs of  skates.
  • The ice rink is two-thirds the size of a standard National Hockey League rink.

 

The MassMutual Pittsburgh Ice Rink at PPG Place is available for birthday parties, skating lessons, corporate events, holiday parties, private rentals and group outings. Advance reservations are required for parties or large groups. Please call 412-394-3641 to schedule.
