From late-November through February 28, 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 brand new larger ice rink for the 2015-16 season.

  • The new $1 Million ice rink is 116′ x 116′ – 25% larger than original rink.
  • All new dasher boards, ice mat, chilling and operating systems.
  • The new rink is 67% larger than the Rockefeller Center ice rink.
  • 700 pairs of new skates were purchased this year.
  • The new ice rink is two-thirds the size of a standard National Hockey League rink.
  • Accommodates over 40% more skaters than previous years.

 

The Ice Rink 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.
