Wayland's Two Outdoor Ice Rinks are Open

The recent sub-freezing temperatures mean Waylanders get to use the rinks this year.

Break out the hats, gloves and parkas ... Wayland's two outdoor ice rinks are open for business.

The boards of the two rinks, one at Cochituate Field and one at Wayland Town Building soccer fields, were built by volunteers and Department of Public Works employees on Dec. 15.

Once the ground froze, DPW employees spread the tarps and filled the rinks.

Then Mother Nature did the rest, serving up sub-freezing temperatures and making the ice rinks, well, ice.

The rinks are free to use, and skaters are asked to follow a "carry-in, carry-out" policy with their trash. The rinks are not currently lighted so skating is permitted from dawn to dusk. It's possible that some lighting will be provided at one or both links at a later time.

Have you visited the rinks? What do you think? Tell us in the comments and add your own images from your skating fun to our Pics & Clips Gallery.

If only I had known about these two rinks earlier. It's absolutely great that they exist, and I hope they'll be up and running again this winter. I love the initiative and hope that the plan to add lighting for night time skating comes to fruition. /F
