Headed out for your lunch break? Beginning on Wednesday, Dec. 5, enjoy a relaxing skate during your lunch hour or maybe get in a quick workout? Sponsored by the College of the Holy Cross, the Worcester Common Oval will open to the public for Lunch Time Skating on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the month of December from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“We are excited to open the rink during the downtown lunch hour for all to enjoy,” said Sandra Dunn, General Manager, SMG/DCU Center, which will professionally manage the rink. “We are proud to support the City in their exploration of new partnerships and programming to make the Oval an enjoyable destination.”

The rink, which will open on Friday, Nov. 30, will be complete with amenities, such as piped-in music, skate rentals, concessions, holiday lights, and more, making it a fun and affordable family-friendly activity. Admission for Lunch Time Skate is $1 and skate rentals will be available for $3. The rink will also open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, holidays, and school vacations from 1 – 6 p.m. Skate lessons are available on Thursdays and Saturdays.

“In partnership with the City of Worcester, Holy Cross is happy to sponsor Lunch Time Skates on the Oval this December,” said Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president of the College. “The rink is a wonderful addition to our downtown, and represents the vitality and energy that makes Worcester such a special place to live and work.”
