STATE PARKS OFFERS FREE ICE SKATING
The outdoor skating rinks at DeVeaux Woods State Park and Reservoir State Park are now open
Both rinks will be open weather pending and are free for the public to use. Skate rentals are not available and HOCKEY IS PROHIBITED as it ruins the ice surface of the rustic rinks.
The hours of operation for both rinks are as follows:
Sundays - Thursdays: 11am – 7:00 pm
Fridays & Saturdays: 11am – 8:00 pm
When the rink at Reservoir is closed, the Winter Pavilion will remain open from 11am to dusk.
The rink at Deveaux was created by a partnership between the City of Niagara Falls and the Niagara Region of New York State Parks and the Reservoir rink was built during reconstruction of the park that was completed by the New York State Power Authority.
