NO SKATING PERMITTED WHEN RINK IS CLOSED
We appreciate your attention to these safety rules
The Veterans Park Skate Rink is a synthetic ice, which is a solid polymer material designed for skating using normal metal bladed ice skates.
The rink is constructed by interlocking panels.
The friction rate is higher than ice so there is a little more effort required to glide. The benefit is that the rink is lower maintenance, is not weather dependent and is able to stay open for a longer season.
Middletown Recreation supports our community in many ways.
We are asking if you could bring one non-perishable food item to donate with Middletown Recreation to the Amazing Grace Food Pantry.
