Feb 19: These mild temps are not good for the rink. The rink is currently CLOSED, as it is puddled and mushy. Please stay off the ice! When the cold weather returns, we will do our best to open the rink again! Thank you!
A BIG thank you goes out to those who continue to maintain the ice rink after each storm! DPW and our volunteers do a great job preparing the rink for skaters of all ages to enjoy!
Occasionally during the season, the rink may be posted as closed if conditions are not optimal or if usage will damage the ice for the season. When you see the closed sign, please stay off the rink. Thank you for your cooperation. For safety reasons, please do not go on the ice when the Zamboni is in use!
Scroll down for important program information & events scheduled at the rink for the 2017 season!
