Cooperstown’s Badger Park ice skating rink opens Sunday, December 5, with Friends of the Parks collaborating with the village to welcome residents for family skating fun.
Volunteers have more than 100 pairs of sharpened skates available at Badger Park for use by local families. The walls of the rink that hold the liner have been scraped, repaired, and freshly painted, and a new pavilion was installed to accommodate the picnic area.
Friends of the Parks has been working hard to help village families enjoy outdoor winter sports. As soon as its cold enough, bring the whole family for skating on the rink at
87 Beaver Street in the Village of Cooperstown.
