Robson Square rink set to reopen for skaters

The Robson Square skating rink in downtown Vancouver opens for the season Wednesday morning.

The rink was renovated for the 2010 Winter Olympics after being closed for 10 years.

The rink will be officially opened by Citizens' Services and Open Government Minister Ben Stewart and Vancouver-Langara MLA Moira Stilwell at 10 a.m. PT.

In past years, admission has been free and skates can be rented on site.
