The new rink at Casey Park is open for Watertown residents to take a skate or play some hockey.
The rink at the park on Watertown Street opened a week ago and the ice has been the focus since then, said Recreation Director Peter Centola.
“Thanks to the diligent work of the DPW, the ice surface is improving every day and is ready for play,” Centola said.
The think will be open with a park ranger as supervisor at the times listed below:
Monday, Jan. 19: 8 a.m to 9 p.m.
Tuesday, Jan. 20: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Wednesday to Friday: 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The availability of rink will be based on conditions of the surface and weather, Centola said.
“Please bring warm cloths, protective gear such as helmut/gloves and other such items,” he said. “A schedule is being worked on, so different skating activities or different ages can be created and maintained.”
Daily updates to the public will be made on Notify Me section of the Town of Watertown website (Facilities Section), and on the Recreation Department’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
