PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire — The opening for a new outdoor skating rink near New Hampshire's Strawbery Banke Museum has been delayed due to construction and weather issues.

Barbara MacLeod, spokeswoman for the museum, said the rink was scheduled to open Monday, Dec. 1. The Portsmouth Herald reports ( ) the hope is to provide skating later in the week.

The plan, approved in May, offers a pond-like structure that would be open for three months in the winter. The rink would offer skating lessons, family and community skate times and pick-up hockey games.
