PPG Plaza in downtown Pittsburgh is home to an outdoor ice skating rink. The Rink at PPG Place, managed by Magic Ice Inc. of Florida, has an ice surface of 104' x 104' - more than 2,000 sq. ft. larger than the rink at Rockefeller Center. During the holiday season, the rink incorporates the plaza's traditional 60-foot tree. A fountain replaces the ice in the spring.
