City and state open public ice skating rink at DeVeaux Woods

NIAGARA FALLS — The New York Sate Park’s DeVeaux Woods free public ice skating rink opened this week and will remain open daily, weather conditions permitting, until the end of the winter outdoor ice skating season.

The rink is located on the DeVeaux Woods property which is directly off of Lewiston Road (Route 104) in the DeVeaux section of the city. Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the exception of Friday when the rink closes at 4 p.m. and Christmas when it will be closed all day.

The ice rink, beginning its second year of operation, came about through a cooperative effort of the city of Niagara Falls and New York State Parks. The city contributed toward the start-up costs of the ice rink liner and outdoor lighting equipment. The State Parks maintains the facility and provides staffing.

“Niagara Falls enjoys its winters activities and ice skating is a large part of winter recreation,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster. “We are pleased to work with the State Parks to make free public ice skating available to our residents.”

The rink features a few improvements this year including a wood boarder, re-graded base and a double liner. Skaters of all ages are welcome to enjoy the free public skating. Ice hockey is not allowed.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
