This ice is nice this season at Piper Pond in West Springfield. Ice skating at the pond is available daily until 10 p.m. (when the lights are turned out). Park in the lot for Memorial Pool at 51 Smyrna Street and follow the footpath down to the pond. There are two benches available for getting skates on and off. Lots of hockey players here but plenty of space for everyone. This is a BYO skates experience -- there are no rentals available.
We'd love to discover some more places with outdoor skating as it is so hard to find indoor ice time right now. Where is your favorite skating spot?
