O’Gara ice rink opens

The ice rink behind the tennis courts on O’Gara Drive is now open for the season.

With the recent roller coaster of highs and lows in temperature, the Merrimack Parks & Recreation Department has finally been able to open the ice rink to the public, as weather permits, seven days a week from sunrise until 10 p.m., with lights on from 4:30-10 p.m.

A group of volunteers will groom the ice on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. On these evenings, the rink will be closed to skaters at 8:30 p.m.

Current conditions will be posted on the Merrimack Parks & Recreation and Merrimack Department of Public Works’ Facebook pages.

For more information, call the Parks & Recreation Department at 882-1046 or the Department of Public Works at 423-8551.
