Allston-Brighton residents flock to new ice skating rink, which Harvard opened in a former auto garage and showroom.
Harvard University will open a free skating rink in Allston on Friday (Jan. 15). The 40-by-60-foot temporary indoor rink will be open to the public Fridays and weekends through March 28.
In the future, Harvard will go beyond traditional ivy and red brick to create campuses with more energy-efficient buildings that minimize water usage and produce low air emissions.
To meet the increased physical planning and development needs of the faculties and departments on Harvard's existing campus while simultaneously preparing for first-phase development in Allston, the Harvard Planning + Allston Initiative (HPAI) - the team that coordinated University-wide physical planning - has been reconfigured into two University organizations.
