Skating Rink Replacement Project

Greenwich’s skating rink is on Sue Merz Way on a site shared with the Strazza Field, across Western Jr. Highway from Western Middle School.  The facility was built as an outdoor rink in 1971 and was designated as the Dorothy Hamill Skating Rink in 1976.  Incremental projects over the years added a roof, exterior walls and spectator seating.  The existing facility has a number of fundamental and critical issues, notably substandard ice size and inadequate, aging and non-code-compliant equipment, building systems and fixtures.  The Town intends to build a new, high quality rink facility on the property capable of serving Town users for the decades to come.   Information about this project is available below.
