City ice rink opens in time for Christmas break

WOONSOCKET - The River Island Park ice rink in Woonsocket opened for the season last Sunday.

The rink offers free skating and free ice skates, and will be open every day through the winter season from 1 to 9 p.m. The concession stand will be open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with proceeds to benefit the parks summer programs.

Family fun activities are also offered every Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. Generally, the activities will be simple in nature because of the limits posed by bulky, cold weather clothing.
