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 ASM Global, the DCU Center's talented management team.
Out of safety and concern for our community, the Worcester Common Oval Public Ice Skating Rink will remain closed for the season due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The annual Festival of Lights event has been cancelled but a virtual tree lighting ceremony will replace it. Date to be announced.
