Welcome to the George S. DeArment Ice Arena!

Our regulation 200' by 85' ice rink serves hockey pros and brand new skaters alike. During our ice season from August to March, enjoy our rink by coming to public skating sessions, joining a hockey league, curling, figure skating, or watching your little one learn how to skate. In the off season, visit the rink for in-line skating, flea markets, craft shows, dances, concerts, and more.

Our skating facilities include a heated lobby, locker rooms, restrooms, skate rental, a pro-shop, and a snack bar. We also offer skate sharpening for figure and hockey skates for only $6.00.
