Ice Skate Outdoors In Stamford’s Mill River Park

The Steven & Alexandra Cohen Skating Center will be open into March.

STAMFORD, CT — When the temperatures drop in New England thoughts often turn to outdoor skating. And in Stamford, a new, temporary outdoor skating rink has opened downtown so you don’t have to wait for the ponds to freeze to lace up the skates.

The Steven & Alexandra Cohen Skating Center, which officially debuted this week in Mill River Park, will be open seven days a week through March 15, according to organizers. The ribbon cutting with organizers, Mayor David Martin and sponsors, including First County Bank, was held on Dec. 3.

The rink features an ice surface of more than 9,000 square feet dedicated to recreational skating, which reportedly is larger than the ice surface at Rockefeller Center in New York.

Costs are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12, active duty members of the military and seniors, with skate rentals costing $4. See the hours below.

The site serves two purposes, an ice rink in the winter and a splash-pad type public fountain in the summer months.

Hours for the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Skating Center in Mill River Park:
Monday – Thursday 4pm- 9pm
Friday 4pm – 10pm
Saturday 11am – 10pm
Sunday 11am – 9pm
