Town of Avon plans to open ice rink on Nottingham Lake January 8


After a warm start to the winter, the Town of Avon is bringing ice skating back to Nottingham Lake. Public Operations and Recreation Department staff are working hard to open the ice rink next week with a target date of Monday, January 8, with skating from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. The opening date is contingent upon weather and ice rink conditions over the next few days.


The Town is planning to operate the ice rink from early January through early March but may be adjusted based on staffing, weather or ice conditions. The Recreation Department manages the ice rink and provides skate rentals and concessions out of the Metcalf Cabin in Harry A. Nottingham Park. Community members and visitors with their own skates can enjoy use of the Nottingham Lake ice rink for free but are required to sign a liability waiver. Skaters can enjoy hot cocoa, s’mores, fire pits, music, seasonal lighting and beautiful views!


The ice rink will be open seven days a week from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Hours of operation are subject to change based on staffing, weather and ice quality. An open skate section and recreational hockey area will be available daily. “Box hockey” goals will be provided on the west end of the ice rink, running north and south. The Recreation Department will also plan to offer select ice programs such as Learn to Skate, Drop-In Hockey and Drop-In Tea Kettle Curling. 


Updates on ice rink status, operations or programs can be found online at, Avon Recreation’s social media pages or by calling the Recreation Center front desk at 970-748-4060.
