Sturges Park Skating Rink Closure

Reading, MA — The Public Works Department announces that the ice rinks at Sturgis Park will be closed and drained due to vandalism to the rinks. 

The Town received reports of vandalism over the weekend through SeeClickFix and, upon inspection today, determined that the ice is unsafe for skating due to branches, rocks, a trash bin, dog refuse bags, plastic bottles, and sundry other items thrown onto the ice and embedded within it. Crews will drain the rinks in order to safely clean the area, then reopen on a future date not yet determined. If you have any knowledge about these acts, or have doorbell camera footage of these events, please call the Police non-emergency line (781-944-1212), and our dispatchers will assign a working patrol officer. Thank you. We will be here.
