No Outdoor Rink this year

To the Lexington community,

It is with mixed emotions we won’t be seeking a permit for an outdoor rink at Fletcher Park this year. With all of the uncertainties related to COVID-19 over the last many months into the next year, it is out of an abundance of caution that we have decided to forego a rink this year and set our sights on planning for a great Winter 2022 season.  

We want to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to the Town of Lexington, the Select Board, the Lion’s Club and the citizens of Lexington for making an outdoor rink possible the last five years.  A special shout-out to the Department of Public Works for all of the care and enthusiasm they have put into this project since its inception.

If you would like to learn more about the rink and help plan for the Winter 2022 season, please contact Lisa O’Brien at

Stay healthy and see you next winter!

Cold temps are here!

The cold temps moved in last night, winter has arrived!  The rink is not frozen over just yet but we are hopeful to open over the MLK weekend – stay tuned!!

… Our thanks to DPW for helping clear the leaves that accumulated during the warmer weather…

Rink will be back for it’s 5th year!

Lexington’s Pop-up Winter Rink is Back for it’s 5th Season!

We are thrilled to announce the Fletcher Park Ice Rink will be back for it’s 5th season in Winter 2020.  Please stay tuned for more information about the rink opening.  New this year:  the SkateLexington crew will be working with a private company (thank you to Gatchell Co!) to help with snow removal during significant snow events … we will however still have shovels out for volunteers to help maintain throughout the season as well!

If you’d like to donate to the rink to help cover the costs of maintaining the rink, please go to:

Thank you to the the Lion’s Club, DPW, the Town of Lexington and rink enthusiasts of all ages for your continued support!
Looking forward to the 2020 season,
Skate Lexington

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!
