Aotea Square Ice Rink
17 June – 1 August
From June 17 – 1 August, tens of thousands of people will flock to the rink to show off their moves or learn new ones on ice.
Construction of the ice rink begins today, 9 June by Paradice Ice Skating, in readiness for opening on Thursday next week.
The rink requires 12 kilometres of aluminium piping carrying 500 litres of antifreeze to freeze 20,000 litres of water over three days. A 32-metre-long ice slide will make for an “exhilarating” tube ride.
Make Aotea Square your winter getaway this year – it’s a winter wonderland right here on your doorstep!
