Skating is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors during a lovely New England winter. Bring your corporate or school group, or just a bunch of friends, to enjoy a few hours away from the hustle and bustle. The rink is located in a beautifully landscaped plaza with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.
