Closed: Public Ice Skating
WHEN: Sunday, February 12: 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. | WHERE: The Ice at Canalside
Open skate on The Ice at Canalside will be closed today, Sunday, February 12, due to rain, which is causing unsafe skating conditions.
The Ice at Canalside is a large, completely open air rink. This creates a special skating experience that cannot be found anywhere else in Western New York. Unfortunately, this also makes the ice surface sensitive to the elements- including wind, rain, sun, and temperature fluctuations. Our technicians are working hard to prepare the Ice for tomorrow but sometimes Mother Nature has other plans! Thank you for your continued support!
