Vision

Imagine…

…A winter destination, where families will gather and participate in various social activities in a premier facility, and be a part of a safe, healthy, energetic, and fun community.

The Ridgefield Winter Club (RWC) will combine a strong family-focused premier facility with an outdoor ice skating rink -- and fill a void in our town for families who want the opportunity for outdoor winter sports, recreation, and social events. Working with the best architects and designers, the old, deteriorating Pinchbeck Nursery will be turned into a freshly landscaped setting with a Clubhouse that will include a golf simulation room, four lanes of bowling, a tabletop game room, homework rooms, casual dining with a small bar, locker rooms, along with other amenities. Through a range of outdoor and indoor activities, the RWC will strengthen family and community bonds in a safe, interactive, social environment during the winter months.
