Strawbery Banke may become home to a seasonal outdoor ice skating rink as early as next year. The proposed Puddle Dock Pond skating rink would be frozen by a compressor system like many indoor rinks and would regularly be resurfaced by a Zamboni. The plan, presented at the annual meeting of the Friends of the South End, also calls for a warming fire pit, a viewing area, and a small restaurant. Proponents would have to raise about $300,000 to carry out the plan.
