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 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. Short on time? Snag a Fast Pass for $40 and skip the line! The Ribbon stays open through March (weather permitting) and will host a Skate with Santa on Saturday, December 15 from 10am to noon. Visit the winter attraction Monday through Thursday from noon to 8pm, Friday from noon to 10pm, Saturday from 10am to 10pm and Sunday from 10am to 8pm.

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.
