WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Worcester parks officials have decided it’s too cold to open an outdoor ice rink.

The Worcester Common Oval was to open between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday for public skating.

The Telegram & Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2hPnnhb ) city officials decided that with wind chills expected to be below zero, a decision was made to keep the rink closed for the health and safety of those who use it.

The oval is scheduled to reopen at noon on Saturday.
