As part of a "Healthy Communities" initiative the Town Manager requested CPW investigate the potential construction and installation of an outdoor skating rink located at Emerson Field. After discussions with the Recreation Director, Deputy Town Manager and Recreation Commission, as well as visiting other communities who have successfully installed similar rinks to learn more about installation techniques, work commenced on the "pilot" installation in 2010.
Since that time the rink at Emerson Field and at Rideout Field in West Concord have been prepared for the enjoyment of residents as weather permits.
