Many Cincinnatians harbor fond memories of ice skating on Fountain Square on a frosty winter day in the midst of downtown’s tallest buildings.
The Fountain Square ice rink is located in the center of the redesigned Square, in view of the fountain. At 7,000 square feet, it is about the size of the rink at New York's Rockefeller Center. Amenities include skate rental, lockers, benches, and a heated tent with vending machines for snacks and drinks. Hot drinks and sweets are available at Graeter's on the Square and at Ingredients across the street. Other nearby restaurants include Potbelly Sandwich Works, Rock Bottom Brewery, Palomino, Via Vite, Chipotle and several more restaurants within a block or two of the Square.
