ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A synthetic ice rink was unveiled at Ontario Beach Park on Friday.
The new ice rink is a part of Monroe County’s “Go Outside” Parks Revitalization initiative — which has spent over $2 million to improve the parks of Monroe County.
Monroe County Executive Adam Bello, who was at the unveiling of the ice rink, said that it isn’t just a regular skating rink — it can be used year-round whether it’s cold or warm outside.
“This really is a treasure — an asset for the community — we’re right here on the lake, on the river,” Bello said. “What an incredible thing where it’s not weather dependent — it’s raining outside, but there’s people skating.”
The ice rink will be open daily from 10 a.m. through 10 p.m. throughout the year. It’s free for all ages and skill levels. You just have to bring your own skates.
