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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay healthy and see you next winter!
The Skate Lexington crew
The cold weather has arrived and the rink is open for skating. Please bundle up and enjoy the brisk winter air all within a stone’s throw of Lexington Center!
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…
The rink is very close to being solid ice however, warm temperatures are heading our way. Looks like colder temps could be back late next week, please stay tuned for more updates!
The Lexington DPW has completed construction and flooding of the Fletcher Rink- it is ready for a nice cold stretch to make us some ice. We’ll continue to post updates here as we wait for Mother Nature to do her part and get the rink open for 2020!
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: skatelexington.com/donate/
Or if you would rather, please send a check 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,
The rink has been cleared and resurfaced (thank you DPW!) – it will be open as of tomorrow AM while we have the cold temps. Happy March 🙂
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!
The warm weather the last few days combined with the cold snap have helped create some nice ice … the wind keeps knocking the signs down but rink is open, enjoy!
If you’d like to help support the rink, please grab a shovel and head down to help shovel. Keeping snow off the rink is a important for good ice and many hands make light work!
