Somerville Adds Public Ice Skating Hours for Extreme Heat


Along with other opportunities to stay cool at Somerville cooling centers and air-conditioned libraries, as well as pools and park water features, the City invites residents (and other miserably hot folks) to come to regularly scheduled public skating at our air-conditioned Veterans Memorial Rink (Mon.-Fri. and Sunday 12-2 p.m.). We’ve also added extra skating hours to beat the heat on Sat., August 13, 1-3 p.m. Skating is free. Skate rentals are $5, or you can bring your own. You can also just come and sit in the bleachers. The rink is at 570 Somerville Ave. For cooling center info, library hours, and a link to an interactive map of parks with water play features, visit and click the Heat Advisory alert.
