Where to Go Ice Skating this Winter | Newtown Moms

Ice skating is a great way to blow off some energy during the Winter months. And although, I don’t know of any outdoor rinks happening in Newtown this year, there are several local rinks with open skate times, as well as outdoor rinks open at a bit of a drive. See below for options within an hour of Newtown/Danbury.


Please be sure to check all websites before heading out for COVID-19 protocols and ticketing instructions. Many are asking skaters to purchase tickets ahead of time.

Many outdoor rinks, such as the Westport PAL Rink at Longshore, Mill River Park in Stamford, Redding Community Center and more are closed this year due to COVID-19. I will update this list as more information becomes available. The two options below are available only when temps are cold enough to ensure freezing.
