Have you ever been past the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and ventured over to the spectacular dome that is the iconic rotunda of Rowes Wharf? Well, it comes to be known that this area of the Boston Waterfront, usually donned by a massive American flag, will now have a new attraction to further its beauty. A large outdoor ice skating rink of 37x80 feet is set to be installed at this location, home of the Boston Harbor Hotel, which will be able to hold up to twenty skaters at any time.

Equity Office is the firm behind this wonderful initiative, something that will provide even further justification for visitors and locals alike to continue to visit the spectacular Boston Waterfront during the winter season. As was evidenced by the incredibly popular free public skating that we have reported Fenway Park has put on for the public, skating is an attraction that is very enticing to people of all ages in the region looking to keep active this winter and spend an enjoyable time with family, friends, or even on a romantic date.

John Conley, the Senior Vice President of Equity Office just highlighted his plans in advance of the Downtown Waterfront Municipal Harbor Planning Advisory Committee. Mr. Conley was asked by the panel to comment on this vision and thus proceeded to state that, Its something that will keep the activity coming down here, and we will keep it open through February. So while Frog Pond in the Boston Common is a lovely place to skate, this winter season do make sure to come to Rowes Wharf to experience a new, unique, and picturesque way to enjoy skating right on the Boston Waterfront.
