Although the County’s two outdoor ice-skating rinks (at Christopher Morley and Grant parks) have closed for the season, skaters can continue to enjoy the pastime at Cantiague Park’s newly renovated indoor ice-skating rink.
The Cantiague Park ice-skating rink offers public skating sessions from five to seven days a week, generally from 1 to 3 p.m., depending upon the demands on the rink from hockey leagues and other events. There are also multiple sessions on Mondays and Fridays, depending upon other demands on the rink. During the school year, the rink adds additional public sessions during breaks. Public sessions are divided into general skating and speed skating (speed skates required). To learn more about public sessions, call the Cantiague Park skating rink (571-7056).
