The Murphy Rink in South Boston is open for public skating until March 20 as part of the DCR’s program.
South Boston Online stopped by on a recent Sunday morning to check it out.
A group from East Boston was having a blast on the small rink while South Boston Youth Hockey games were being played on the large rink. The Eastie parents had been looking for a rink that was open in the morning – before naptime – and saw Murphy Rink offered that. The parents appreciated that a smaller rink was available for their young children, ages 2 and 3.
The rink offers skate rentals, and for new skaters, crates and other aids are available.
