Ice Skating at the Worcester Common Oval
The City's 12,000-square-foot rink, which opened in 2012, is 4,000 square feet larger than the rink at New York City's Rockefeller Center.
The Oval has piped-in music, skate rentals, concessions, holiday lights and more, making it a fun and affordable family-friendly activity. The rink is professionally managed by SMG, the DCU Center's talented management team.
Regular hours of operation will be Fridays 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, Saturdays and Sundays 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The season will start December 4th and last through February.

During the weeks of December 28th and February 15th, the Oval will be open from 12:00 PM until 5:00 PM, Monday through Thursday, and 12:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Friday, February 19th.
