A new ice rink in Somerville is allowing for the city to extend public skating hours, according to an announcement from the city.
The new rink -- which opened in September on Somerville Avenue, near Veterans Memorial Rink -- will host a belated grand opening in January, the announcement said. The rink has not yet been named.
The extended free public skating hours are as follows:
Veterans Memorial Rink: Monday, Friday; 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.; Wednesday, $12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. to 5 p.m.
New rink: Tuesday and Thursday, 3:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday hours at both rinks will be posted weekly at the Somerville Recreation Department's website.
