I don’t know if my Xmas Eve post (Looking for a place to ice skate outdoors? Consider the pond in Hidden Valley Park) had anything to do with it but a game of  hockey broke out on the pond in Hidden Valley Park yesterday afternoon.

It was classic neighborhood pond hockey: shoes for goal posts, goalies in their shoes, no checking, no raising the puck, no one bothering to keep score, lots of smiles.

Photo album: Northfield’s outdoor ice skating rinks at night

It has been a great winter for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and sledding (recent blog posts with photos). But it’s also been terrific for outdoor skating, as we’ve only had a couple days of temps above freezing.  Northfielders are fortunate to have many well-maintained outdoor ice rinks, all with warming houses.

I took photos of a few of them this week during one of our many light snowfalls.  I plan to take photos of the others (see the parks with an ‘x’ in the ice rink column on the City of Northfield’s parks page) in the next week or so.
