When the temperature drops, the city becomes a scenic backdrop for skaters gliding on ice at the Blue Cross River Rink. Alongside the Delaware River at Penn’s Landing, the River Rink is a nice way to start a winter day with kids or spend an evening with a romantic date.
Holiday parties, New Year’s Eve countdowns, and St. Valentine’s soirees are just a few of the special events that take place throughout the season. The River Rink also offers rentals, lessons, games, activities, and group packages.
