The American flag is flying on Fells Road this morning, which means the Pond is open for skating.
To get there, head south on Fells Road (that’s the traffic light by the Community Center) to the corner of Fells Road and Forest Way. The two ponds there are frozen solid, but need to get a bit of snow dusted off. If you are going with small kids go early in the day because the Pond is is a big destination for hockey players. And remember, the Pond is technically for Essex Fells residents, so don’t wear your Verona sweats.
No skating sign up yet either at the Canfield-Morgan House in Cedar Grove or Verona Park Lake, but we’ll let you know as soon as they are open.
