The Rothman Orthopedic Ice Rink 

This seasonal ice rink is set up during most of the winter, providing a holiday activity filled with cheer! Professional or first-time skater, anyone can make a good time out of this rink. Skate rentals are available for $10, and you’re off gliding under the twinkling festive lights. If you’re lucky you might even catch the colorful light show projected on to City Hall, paired with holiday music.

The Rothman Cabin 

If skating is not your cup of tea, or should I say hot chocolate, then you can head over to the Rothman Cabin. After being in the cold air, you can warm up here with coffee and hot chocolate, or they also serve cocktails and beer to those who are of age. Snacks are also provided, so make sure you come with an empty stomach!
