The Newton Highlands Neighborhood Area Council and the Hyde Community Center have built a community ice rink at Hyde Playground every winter since 2009. The ice is in great condition but look for the NO SKATING sign when we don’t want people on the ice due to temperature and use. Every night at 7:00 we give the ice a rest and skim the surface with another layer of water.
The two community groups pay for materials to build the rink and for the maintenance of the rink so donations are welcome. For donations call John Rice 617-201-7088 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paul Gilbert and Daughters donated many hours of labor to build the rink and we thank Paul for his community gift! We also thank the Newton Fire Department for filling our rink with water.
