The Worcester Common Oval represents another success story for Downtown. This continued success is made possible by those in the community who recognize the potential of Worcester, and through their support and sponsorship, are committed to making things happen.

About the Oval

The Oval in Winter Following a successful 2014 Out to Lunch Concert Series & Farmers' Market, the Worcester Common Oval will welcome the return of public skating on the Common.

The Worcester Common Oval will open for the Winter season on Friday, December 5, 2014. Regular hours of operation will be Fridays 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, Saturdays 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM and Sundays 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. View the Worcester Common Oval's Official Website for more information and extended hours of operation during school vacation weeks!

The skating rink is professionally managed by SMG, the DCU Center's talented management team. The 12,000-square-foot rink, which is 4,000 square feet larger than the size of the Rink at Rockefeller Center, is complete with amenities such as piped-in music, skate rentals, concessions, holiday lights and more, making it a fun and affordable family-friendly activity.
