If you’ve driven down Central Street in the past few days, you might have notice a new addition to Fayville Field.
The Southborough Recreation Department along with the Friends of Southborough Recreation are building a new skating rink at the park. The structure is up, but there’s no ice just yet. That’s coming soon.
Recreation Director Doreen Ferguson said they’ve tried to offer spots for skating in the past, but this is the first year they’ve build a rink. “We have tried to keep the Neary pond cleared, but when the person who was clearing it fell through the ice again last year I thought this was not an ideal situation,” she said.
The Friends of Southborough Recreation paid for the rink and for the ice to be cleared when needed. Ferguson said they’ve also been offered support by the backyard rink community in Southborough. (For more on that fascinating story, read this article published in the Metrowest Daily News last winter.)
I, for one, can’t wait to strap on some skates.
