San Mateo on Ice will return Nov. 13, and will be open daily through Jan. 9 with four free community skate days Nov. 16, Dec. 1, Dec. 7 and Dec. 15.

Workers are in the midst of transforming the ballfield in Central Park at 50 E. Fifth Ave. into the outdoor seasonal rink.

The Parks and Recreation Department is also hard at work on its Winter Wonderland festivities from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4.

Go to for more information on the rink and keep an eye on for more details as they come together.
