Schenectady County Recreational Facility Ice Rink

Voted "Best Summer Cool Down" by the Times Union

Since late 2000, the state-of-the-art ice rink at the Schenectady County Recreational Facility has served residents of Schenectady County and ice skating enthusiasts from the entire Capital Region.

The ice rink offers a wide range of recreational skating, ice hockey and figure skating programs for all ages, and is the home of Schenectady Youth Hockey Association, GMSVS Storm High School Hockey, Burnt Hills/Ballston Spa High School Hockey and numerous Adult Ice Hockey Leagues.

Most events including public skate are drop-in activities and do not require advance registration.  Visitors may pay by cash or personal check.

It also includes a new exterior modern façade, a new room for activities, and extends the parking lot approximately 30 spaces.
