This is the spot where the Farmer's Markets are held in Melrose. In Summertime, it is filled with vendors selling fruits, vegetables, breads, and crafts. Today it is an impromptu skating rink. It was not intentionally flooded by the city for public skating. The rains pre-Polar Vortex flooded the area and now it is ice. There was a lone skater but she did not last long outside in the frigid temps.
