(March 6, 2020) Worcester County’s synthetic ice rink will be officially open for public use next Thursday, March 12 at the Berlin Fire Company in Berlin.
After its debut at the Worcester County Recreation Center in Snow Hill with on Friday, Dec. 20, the rink will be featured in Berlin for the entire month of March starting next week. The Berlin Fire Company will charge $5 per person to skate in the rink. There is no cost for spectators, though snacks and bottled water will be available for purchase.
“This will be a great fundraiser for the firefighters,” Berlin Fire Company President David Fitzgerald said. “I hope everyone will come out and enjoy some time on the county ice rink.”
The rink is 32 by 52 feet, which means it must be located in a space that is 2,800 square feet of open space at a minimum. The Berlin Fire Company’s banquet hall was a perfect location as a result.
Skating operations will be open for the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 6-9 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 1-7 p.m.
The rink will also be available for fundraising events and other activities.
The synthetic ice rink is not fully installed as of earlier this week according to Fitzgerald, but will be completed and ready to operate by next Thursday.
