Rink is messy!

The rink is messy from the snow / sleet / rain yesterday – we are hoping the weather over next couple of days will help with melt and refreeze.  If you can stay off the rink for the next few days, there is cold weather ahead early next week for – fingers crossed – a little more skating time this season, thank you!

Thanks to David Green, Our First 2019 Sponsor

We take a brief break from updates about the wonderful start of the season to thank our a sponsor for the 2019 season. David Green from Douglas Elliman Real Estate is our first sponsor this season and we want to thank him for his support. Without the financial support of the community, the Fletcher Rink would not be possible.

Season Off To a Great Start!

We have the first weekend of the open rink under our belt, and it was a great one! With the sunny weather, we had a lot skaters out testing the ice. One other small update:

CRATES!
For those little ones just learning to skate, you can find milk crates near the rink. The crates can be stacked and pushed to help provide some balance as the little ones take their first spin around the ice.

Though it is cold outside, nothing warms you up like a few spins around the rink! Get out there while the getting is good!

 

 

2019 Opening Sunday January 13

We’re happy to announce that the Fletcher Park Rink will open for the season on Sunday, January 13th. We have had a nice cold stretch and one more overnight freeze should have the rink ready to go tomorrow!

Bundle up and bring your skates starting tomorrow. Enjoy the cold crisp winter air with the chance to skate in the outdoors in the heart of Lexington!

Getting Colder, Rink Freezing

We’ve lined and flooded the rink- now we just need some help from Mother Nature. We need a stretch of days with sub-freezing temperatures to help establish a nice ice foundation. Once we’ve gotten that, we’ll open the rink for the season! Hang tight as the weather forecast looks promising!
