Free ice skating has returned to Rogers Park in Danbury. There was about a decade when skating didn't happen because the City renovated and preserved the pond in its natural state. A skating rink was purchased in 2010. During the City Council meeting this week, Mayor Mark Boughton commended the Parks and Rec Director and also the Public Works Director for their work in getting the rink set up again.
There are some rules, including that everyone on the ice must wear skates. People must bring their own skates. There is no hockey, sleds, bikes or pets allowed on the ice. It's open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4pm to 8:30pm during the winter, weather permitting.
Signs will be in place if there are hazardous conditions.
