The Skating Rink / Warming Hut Is Currently - CLOSED (2/22/17)
Rink is located at Libby Recreation Complex (next to soccer field)
CURRENT ICE CONDITIONS:
Due the increasing warm weather and bright sunny days the ice has deteriorated to the point where the ground is showing in approximately 1/3 of the rink.
Due to this issue the ice rink / warming hut will be closed until further notice. Unless temperatures decrease and we are able to flood again our skating season
may be over
For safety, please follow all posted rules.
For ice quality, please follow the "rink closed" notice postings (if applicable).
This will allow us to maintain the ice for further use.
The Gorham Libby Recreation Complex Skating Rink is an unsupervised and is a "Skate at Your Own Risk" facility. However, town employees have the right to ask anyone behaving inappropriately to leave. Please note that use of the rink is subject to weather, ice conditions and scheduled programs & events. Occasionally, the rink will be closed if conditions are not optimal or if usage will damage the ice for further usage (please stay off the ice and give us time to clear it or regain proper ice conditions). Closings will be posted on the Gorham Rec Department website and Facebook page. Users are strongly encouraged to wear helmets and other protective gear. Always skate in control and be considerate of others!

OPEN SKATE is for anyone who would like to skate. Sticks & pucks are NOT allowed during these times (listed below). If the rink is not being used by skaters during open skate hours, then pucks & stick may be used. However, if one person shows up to skate, then pucks & sticks must come off of the ice completely.

The Rec. Dept. crew will work when possible and as needed to maintain the surface of the ice (flooding / cleaning off). If you find it necessary to use the rink and it has not been cleaned off, please ensure you clean the entire surface free of snow left on the ice as it may refreeze and diminish the quality of the skating surface.
Thank you and Happy Skating
