I think it's safe to say ice skating season in Hopkinton has ended. On Wednesday April 1st, the Ice Rink at the Middle School basketball courts melted causing a dam to break and the water leaked out into the streets around dismissal time. It made for a wet ride home as temperatures reached near 50 degrees. The water leaked out of the fence side facing the street. The water was cleared just a couple hours later.
This year was the first year in a long while the Ice rink was put in at the Middle School Basketball courts. it was a successful effort by Hopkinton Parks and Recreation department with the help of many other Hopkinton organizations. The rink was used by many and enjoyed throughout the winter.
I guess on the 1st day of April mother nature decided that winter activites are done.
