Youth Center Ice Rink

Our third annual outdoor ice rink is now open! What does this mean for members? It means fun events like curling and an ice hockey tournament and a great place to skate around after school. But the rink isn't just for members... All North Andover residents are welcome to use the rink, for free! We ask that all users of the rink follow our rules, which can be found on our Ice Rink page, along with more information and pictures. See you on the ice!

Due to recent warm temperatures, our rink is temporarily closed. Stay tuned for updates!
