Welcome to Family Ice Center!

The Family Ice Center is Southern Maine’s premier year-round ice skating and community center.

Family Ice Center, located in Falmouth, Maine offers a full complement of programs that include public skating indoors as well as outdoors on one of Maine’s finest refrigerated outdoor skating surfaces: the Lee Twombly Pond at Family Ice Center. The “Pond” has successfully undergone extensive repairs and upgrades with a brand new surface and refrigeration infrastructure thanks to our wonderful community and partners.

Family Ice Center is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization.

Lee Twombly Pond

Thank You Community!

Family Ice Check Presentation

Over 25 years ago, the Lee Twombly Pond debuted as Maine’s first and only outdoor refrigerated pond, providing community members of all ages the opportunity to enjoy one of winter’s most iconic, inclusive outdoor activities.

A capital campaign to raise the funds to complete this project was launched in the winter of 2023 and has generated widespread community support. Due to the generosity of our donors, we were able restore the refrigeration system and pond infrastructure and re-open for the ’23-’24 season.

To reach our ultimate fundraising target and ensure the Pond can endure for future generations of skaters, we still need support from our entire community, in Falmouth and beyond.

Grand Re-Opening Event

We did it together!

In late fall of 2022, when it became clear that the Lee Twombly Pond would not open due to failing infrastructure, the Board of Directors and Staff at Family Ice Center decided to launch a fundraising campaign to rebuild the Pond. We reached out to our community and asked for contributions – and you delivered.

We received over 250 individual donations in a little more than a year, enabling us to rebuild and unveil a brand new outdoor refrigerated facility for the future enjoyment of the residents of Falmouth, and beyond. To all who contributed, we thank you sincerely. Our 2023-24 season was enormously successful. We welcomed thousands of skaters to the Pond, and launched a free Learn to Skate program, thanks to the generous support of our sponsor, L.L.Bean.

At the end of every season, we make the difficult decision to close the Pond when maintaining the ice becomes untenable, and we are at that point now. We hope you had a chance to enjoy the unique experience of free outdoor public skating, and look forward to next fall when we will crank up the hoses, and cold night temperatures will once again transform the Lee Twombly Pond into a skater’s paradise.

If you donated to our Save the Pond campaign, you should find your name acknowledged here. If you do not see your name or you need to make a correction, please email us at josh@familyice.org. Next season we will proudly unveil an outdoor marker acknowledging all our generous donors.

Thank you, and congratulations. We did it together!
