Gardiner - A New Place to Skate this winter!
A New Place to Skate this winter! There's a new place for ice skating this winter -- down by the Kennebec River in Waterfront Park! There's benches useful for changing shoes and a great area for a pick up hockey game, figure skating, or a quick break from work. Come on down and try it! Gardiner Main Street's own Jennifer Polley, of The Therapy Zone, helped to bring together the outreach committees at Grace Community Chapel and Church in Life to make this dream a reality. These groups worked with the City of Gardiner to create a wonderful skating area open to the public. Joe Gould with Church in Life was a leading force in construction and organizing, and is helping to keep up maintenance of the ice along with Gardiner Youth Hockey. This weekend the ice conditions will be varied with the warmer weather, but it looks like it will firm up again next week! Get out and enjoy the winter in Downtown Gardiner.

Viles Arboretum - Fitness for all Seasons ( 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. )
The Viles Pond Loop is the best introductory walk in the Arboretum. It goes through the hosta garden, past the old piggery and out to Viles Pond. It is about a mile round trip. Dogs are allowed on arboretum grounds but must be leashed at all times. Dog waste must be picked up and removed from the Aboretum by the owner. Failure to do so may result in the loss of the priviledge to bring dogs onto the property. Dogs are NOT allowed in cultivated areas, including the quarry ledge rock garden. Bicycles are allowed on the trails. Cyclists must yield to visitors on foot. Courtesy, common sense, and safety for all are of paramount importance. The Arboretum offers what may be the best groomed ski trials in the area. Groomed trails are open to skiers only. Marked snowshoes trails are also available. The Arboretum is beautiful in winter. Please enjoy. Horses are allowed on all trails but the Hosta trail. Horses are not allowed on bridges and boardwalks. The grounds are open every day of the year from dawn to dusk. The Visitors Center is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
