Time Out says

Situated in the heart of downtown Chicago, with the city's sweeping skyline as a backdrop, the Skating Ribbon at Maggie Daley Park is a winter attraction unlike any other. Skaters can lace up and wind around a winding ice-covered path that's twice the length of a lap around a traditional rink. Admission to the Skating Ribbon is always free, and skate rentals are available for $13–$15. The Ribbon stays open through March (weather permitting) and even offers limited hours on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

I love coming here when I visit my Chicago family!  Kids have areas to play (categorized by appropriate age range), and adults can do their romantic thing.  Both in summer and winter, it's a fun place with beautiful panoramic views of city's skyline as well as Lake Michigan.


Maggie Daley Park is a blast, especially since the new ice skating rink opened up. Prepare to possibly wait in line for a bit, but it's worth it. The skating ribbon is a little more challenging than your standard rink (there are a couple of slight inclines) but you get great views and a pretty good workout while you're at it.
