As a native Westporter, we grew up playing pond hockey whenever the ponds froze. I was part of The Round Pond Crew. Our pond was located on South Compo Rd right before Longshore. I think back then we had colder winters because we skated all the time. I was over joyed to find another pond where my kids and their friends can play. The baby only lasted a half hour, but the big kids skated the whole day. I hope it does not get warm out for awhile. If the ponds melt, you can always visit The Longshore Skating Rink. Or, you can call me, I know where all the ponds are.
