Robson Square it self is to many people not anything too special. It is a nice place, and if you are ever in the area, you should stop by. It’s a nice open square with a semi-underground ice rink.
However, if you are a fan of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series, this place will be very familiar if you played Tony Hawk’s Underground. Most of the Vancouver level in the game is based on Robson Square (called Nobson in the game). When I stood there (read my Vancouver stories here) it was like standing right there in the game. So many details have been included, and they are off course way more skateable in game. Besides Robson Square also Pacific Colliseum and 1500 Georgia Bank is part of the game.
