WINTER FBSP NEWS UPDATE! ICE SKATING AT BROWN STREET PARK


WINTER FBSP NEWS UPDATE! ICE SKATING AT BROWN STREET PARK

We thought it was going to be a quiet winter at Brown Street Park, but we just received the okay from the Providence Parks Department to build a temporary Outdoor Ice Skating Rink (near the community garden). We are so excited to have sledding and skating at BSP. We need your help. We are asking families that like the idea to help sponsor therink in the range of $10.00-$20.00 (If you haven't made a tax deductible donation to FBSP lately, please consider making one for this rink). We also need volunteers to help build the rink on an afternoon to be scheduled, volunteer to maintain, and to remove in early March.

Let Wendy know what you can do wendy@friendsofbrownstreetpark.org by Monday, January 17 as we would like to have the rink built and operational by January 23rd.
  • Donate (please let us know what amount you would like to contribute)
  • Help build (requires one afternoon to lay the frame and lay the waterproof membrane
  • Maintain (we need volunteers to clear the ice after sno or use our homemade Zamboni to clear the ice when it gets choppy)
  • Remove the Rink in early March (A couple of hours to remove adn store until next winter
