Scenes From New Milford on a Cold Winter's Day

The River is frozen and the skating rink is open--New Milford on a cold winter's day.

This week's cold spell has caused the River to freeze and the Ice Rink to open. Take a look at New Milford on a cold winter's day. Share your pictures of New Milford for all of us to enjoy.

Where is the skating rink located?

The skating rink is located next to the swim club. Opening night was last night. Hopefully they will be able to remain open for a few more days before the weather changes. Go down and check it out. Its great outdoor winter fun.

John Bigger A special thank you to our Recreation volunteers who construct, maintain, and oversee the operations of the ice rink: Norman Krause, Pete Tomasczewski, Bart Nativo, and Gary Bowers. For them, it is a labor of love.

Jimmy Drake. These pics are not from O.P but instead from in front of my house and we would not like a tour bus on our tiny dirt road. It is beautiful though, and being a public road you are more than welcome to take a walk and look at the river.

Do you need to be a Swim Club member to use the skating rink?
Donna Tomasini January 28, 2013 at 03:31 AM
Bob - You need to be a resident of New Milford to skate not a member of the swim club.

Thank You to all the volunteers down at the skating rink. The rink is perfect. My family had a blast! Everyone was very very friendly. Hope the weather stays cold enough to get some more use out of it.

I assume you need to own your own ice skates?
Donna Tomasini January 29, 2013 at 04:14 PM
Darlene - They do have some skates available for use at the rink. Some figure, some hockey. Not many but there are some. If anyone has skates any donations would be appreciated. Unfortunately the rink is currently closed due to the warmer weather. Hoping to open again towards the end of the week/weekend.
