A week of sub-zero temperatures presented ideal conditions for
preparing the ice, according to Foundry owner Chris Karr, who is
happy to have a piece of nostalgia in place. "Bringing skating back
to Summit Pond was always part of the vision for The Foundry, and

"I think it's a reminder of the way things used to be and it gives
everybody - kids, families, couples - another opportunity to do
something fun and active outdoors."
Admission prices are $5 for youth and adult; $3 for under 12.
Children under 5 years old skate for free. Free admission is also
offered to Local Yokel passholders. For those who need skates, the
Foundry offers rentals for $8. And there is free hot chocolate
served with the unlimited skate time.
The Foundry at Summit Pond will be open for skating Thursday

be determined. Monster Broomball League is scheduled Tuesdays from
