Weather permitting, The Pond will typically be open from 9 am until
sundown. The operating schedule is generally subject to change and we
expect that it will be modified throughout the season. Any changes to
the standard operating schedule will be posted here at www.avonpond.org.
Although the rink is capable of operating in most temperatures we would
encounter in a typical winter season, it may not be advisable to utilize
the Pond following prolonged periods of unseasonably warm or rainy weather.
We will notify badge holders of changes in operating hours or conditions
which render The Pond inoperable via email or by updating the website.
