Vancouver Seawall

– From @neonair__simoneschuldis

Address: Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC V6G 3E2, Canada


Contact details: 604 873 7000

Operating hours: Open 24 hours

Admission fee: Free 

With an uninterrupted view of the Pacific Ocean, roller skating at the Seawall is just an experience no other indoor skating rink can replicate. And yes, if you’re a K-pop fan, this is where TWICE’s Tzuyu was roller skating in their “Likey” music video!

The crisp, somewhat salty air will softly hit your face as you skate through the 10-kilometre uninterrupted pathway of the Seawall, adding an extra layer of excitement to your roller skating experience. Honestly, where else can you experience that?

If the ocean’s not enough, you’ll also get to enjoy a lot of landmarks while roller skating. Go counter-clockwise from the beautiful Second Beach, and you’ll pass by the lighthouse, the Lumberman’s Arch and into Third Beach!

Pro Tip: Although the skating area of the Seawall is relatively smooth and flat, some areas are still hilly, so it’s best to head over here when you’re already comfortable skating.

One thing Central City Fun Park does well is providing action-packed and fun-filled days to its visitors. With a roller-skating arena, arcade machines, a bowling alley, mini golf, and VR, it’s a massive playground for all ages!

The roller skating rink allows both classic quad skates and inline rollerblades, which are totally free to rent. The giant disco ball in the rink adds more retro vibe to the rink, making it a cute roller skating date night venue.

After gliding at the skating rink, you can head over to the arcade machines, the bowling alley, or any other attraction that catches your attention and have as much fun as you can. You can even get prizes if you manage to win some tickets!

Pro Tips: Entry to the park is free, but you’ll need to load up credits to your Fun Card to access their facilities. Each credit is $0.40, but if you spend at least $30 on your Fun Card, you can get 5 to 30 bonus credits.

If your kid’s birthday is coming up, you can also book a memorable disco roller skating party at Roller Dance Owl! During the party, the kids will get safety instructions from the instructors before enjoying a supervised free skate for an hour!

David Lam Park

– From @camilaciasu

Address: 1300 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2Y1, Canada


Contact details: 604 873 7000

Operating hours: Open 24 hours

Admission fee: Free

David Lam Park is one of Vancouver’s most stunning parks and also one of Vancouver’s best roller skating spots. Conveniently located Downtown, the park’s spacious layout is the perfect place for a quick roller skating experience in the morning.

The public is situated along the False Creek waterfront, so you get a picturesque view of both the creek and Yaletown while gliding down the park. 

If you visit during spring, cherry blossoms will be blooming in the park, giving you a much better view while skating.

Since the park has wide walkways, roller skaters have enough space to skate without dodging other visitors. It even has basketball courts, tennis courts, a soccer field, and a playground if you want to try more than just roller skating.

Pro Tip: David Lam Park often hosts various festivals and events, so the park can get really crowded at times. If you’re still learning how to skate, it’s best to avoid those days and just come during ordinary days.
