Spotlight on backyard ice rinks

Are you or your family so devoted to ice skating you’ve built your own backyard rink? Has it made you the envy of your neighborhood or simply become your own winter recreational spot?

We’re looking for people to share their backyard rinks with us for an upcoming story. We’re hoping to learn what goes into creating and maintaining a rink as well as the joy that comes with having one’s own private skating surface just out their back door.

We’d like to spotlight some outdoor rinks located in Andover as well as North Andover in an upcoming piece in The Andovers magazine, published by The Townsman’s parent company, North of Boston Media Group.

Anyone who is open to sharing their rink stories with us is encouraged to email
