Center City’s Winter at Dilworth Park has reopened its festivities for the 2022 holiday season. Starting November 1st, guests will be invited to skate, shop and dine outside City Hall.
People will be able to enjoy decorations displayed around the Greenfield Lawn area, featuring twinkling lights on festive topiaries within the revamped Wintergarden.
The Rothman Orthopaedics will have its grand opening ceremony on Friday, November 4th, and will be open through February 2023. Reservations for the Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink are highly encouraged and can be booked online for 90-minute time slots on the ice.
College nights will be held at the rink on select Thursdays throughout the season. Temple University Students will be granted a reduced $2 admission free with a valid student ID. All skate rentals will be $10.
Senior Manager of Retail Marketing and Events, Giavana Suraci, describes how people of all ages will be able to enjoy their own favorite festivities.
“When they come to Philadelphia between the months of November to February, they can have that experience even if you can’t be here during Christmas time or the holidays,” Suraci said.
Visitor Clayton Orehek says the decorations draw his attention.
“We’ve been exploring today all over and I’ve been here before and that’s why we’ve come back.”
While the Rothman Orthopedic Rink opens on Friday, several ice rinks throughout the city have opened up free public skating. These rinks include Simons Recreation Center, Laura Sims Skatehouse, Rizzo Ice Rink, Tarken Ice Rink, and Scanlon Ice Rink.
Each rink has their own schedule and skate rentals will vary between $3-4 extra with admission.
