The City of Cambridge owns and operates seven indoor ice surfaces, and a number of volunteer-run outdoor ice rinks. 

Outdoor Ice Rinks

Thank you to the volunteers who maintain our outdoor rinks!

The City of Cambridge has volunteer-run outdoor natural ice rinks, offering great activities for the community to enjoy. These rinks are subject to availability based on the weather conditions and volunteer interest in supporting them. No artificial refrigeration is available, and the conditions must be continuously cold enough to establish a safe and usable rink. The delayed start to winter the year is leading to some rinks now not planning to open in 2023. Two locations may possibly function by mid February, and we ask for your patience as we determine their availability for use.

Rink Rules

  • Helmets are recommended on the ice at all times.
  • Users must be off the ice no later than 10 pm.
  • Refrain from contact in any play.
  • Please stay off the rinks when they are being flooded, or when they are soft and wet to prevent any damage that will delay them from re-opening.

Rink Use Schedule

Time of use may vary slightly by rink location. A few locations plan to have two separate ice surfaces. Each to be signed; one is for stick and puck play only and the other for recreational skating only.
