Looking for some outdoor skating this season? Fun! Check out this list of rinks open on the seacoast.

Disclaimer: Listed here are only outdoor rinks, not small, private ponds because 1) Those who know about the small ponds like to keep them a secret, and 2) I’m terrified of anyone falling through some ice. Safety first.

Further down this article, you’ll find a full list of other further outdoor skating rinks in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine, just in case you happen to be taking a road trip and find yourself near one. See you on the ice!

NOTE: Always call ahead before traveling to a rink. Weather is a big factor of open/close times and ice conditions.

NiceRink® Skating Rink at Stratham Hill Park:
https://www.strathamnh.gov/

stratham_hill_ice_rinkThe last several winters have seen fewer and fewer days suitable for ice making. In recognition of this reality, the Town will not erect the Nice Rink at Stratham Hill Park for this season. The public is encouraged to use the natural ice skating area when the temperatures are low enough to freeze the water in that area. The Park will remain open for all other winter time usage. The sledding hill that had been previously closed to accommodate the Nice Rink will now be open for public usage.

    I would add Somersworth Lions Club. They maintain 3 “rinks”. There is a small concession stand that is sometimes open and if it open they have a room full of ice skates, hockey sticks and pucks for anyone to use free of charge! They also play music. Nice sunny location.

  2. There is a 110′ x 60′ outdoor rink located within Lyons Park in Pelham, NH. Use 6 Village Green, Pelham, NH 03076 as an address.

    Rink hours are updated on our facebook page.
