Twin Rinks, conveniently located midway between the Merritt Parkway and Interstate 95, opened in November 1996 at the former location of Machlett Lab, which at one time employed over 14,000 from the Stamford Area. The building was designed by renowned architect Do Chung, who was one of the founders of the Connecticut Yankees AAA youth hockey program. Twin Rinks was of the first dual rinks to be built in the Metro New York area, and the original clients continue to use it today for their programs and activities. Over the past decades, many improvements have been made to the facility and programs to better serve the community.
Twin Rinks’ focus is to provide every member of the community with the very finest recreational & competitive skating and hockey programs and activities in a state-of-the-art facility that is clean, safe, and convenient, and which is staffed by caring, friendly, and knowledgeable professionals.
