Builders have erected the gazebo, as well as the rink’s platform, ready for thousands of visitors to take to the ice.
Lighting rigs have also been put up at each corner of the rink, which will illuminate skaters in colour and light.
The ice rink, which has welcomed visitors since 2010, reopens to skaters on October 28 until January 7.
