As part of its 100th anniversary, Navy Pier guests will be able to ice skate outdoors all summer long at the Skate by the Lake ice rink in Polk Bros Park, located at the main entry point of Navy Pier.
Skate by the Lake is a state-of-the-art summer ice skating rink and a temporary installation in the new Polk Bros Park. The outdoor ice rink is 82-feet long and 66-feet wide, and is just one of the many special experiences planned for this summer, as part of the Fifth Third Bank Centennial Celebration® at Navy Pier.
Skaters can enjoy Skate by the Lake, from noon until 10 p.m. daily, throughout the summer. Tickets to the rink cost $10 for guests with their own skates and $15 for those who need to rent skates.
To mark the historic anniversary of the Midwest’s most-visited leisure destination, the place known as “the People’s Pier” is undergoing a massive, pier-wide transformation. In addition to the debut of the new Fountain and Plaza, along with the temporary ice skating rink, Navy Pier recently unveiled the bigger, taller and better Centennial Wheel; authentic Chicago restaurants that elevate the new dining experience in the food court; plus a revitalized, pedestrian-friendly South Dock that encourages guests to stroll and enjoy the land, lake, and sky.
