Skating at River Island Park
Completed in 1999, the ice skating rink is the latest addition to Woonsocket's River Island Park. Located behind the Museum of Work and Culture near Market Square, River Island Park has walking paths along the Blackstone River, a canoe ramp and a bandstand for summer concerts. With the addition of the ice skating rink, the park is a year-round attraction.
While the rink itself is smaller than a typical hockey rink, a refrigeration system keeps the ice hard during warm weather. Hockey playing is not allowed, but music keeps the skating fun. The Woonsocket Ice Skating Rink is open daily from December through February, weather permitting. Contact City Hall at 762-6400 for additional information.
