SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Residents in the Hampshire County town of South Hadley can take part in a new winter activity: the town built an ice skating rink.
It opened recently, and on Saturday, many families laced up their skates for some fun on the ice.
The rink is located at the Beachgrounds Park, across the street from Town Hall.
People told 22News they had fun being able to get outside in the snow.
“I really like it,” said Mary Lavallee. “I like how it’s free and we don’t have to pay to ice skate. I like how it’s outside and we can skate with the snow.”
Frank Lukasik said, “It’s great for the community to have this here. We’re lucky. We’ve been skating indoors a lot, but to be able to come out in the winter and skate, it’s excellent.”
Many of the families told 22News they’d be back on the ice again Sunday.
