Winter activities reopen in Philadelphia


Downtown Winter in Dilworth Park reopened its festivities for the 2022 holiday season. Beginning November 1, guests will be invited to skate, shop and dine outside of City Hall.

People will be able to enjoy the decorations displayed around the Greenfield Lawn area, with twinkling lights on festive topiary in the renovated Wintergarden.

The Rothman Orthopedics will have its grand opening ceremony on Friday, November 4 and will be open until February 2023. Reservations for the Rothman Orthopedic Ice Rink are strongly encouraged and can be booked online for 90 minute ice time slots.

University evenings will take place at the ice rink on certain Thursdays throughout the season. Temple University students will be granted free admission at a reduced price of $2 with a valid student ID. All skate rentals will be $10.

Senior Director 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 through 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 catch his eye.

“We explored everywhere today and I’ve been here before and that’s why we came back.”

As the Rothman Orthopedic Rink opens on Friday, several rinks across the city have opened free public skating. These rinks include the Simons Recreation Center, Laura Sims Rink, Rizzo Rink, Tarken Rink, and Scanlon Rink.

Each rink has its own program and skate rentals will vary between $3-4 more with admission.
