Schenectady County Recreation Facility

Welcome to the Schenectady County Recreational Facility!

The rink will be closed starting June 14th while we are performing annual maintenance which includes removing the old ice and creating new ice. We plan on opening July 5th for our scheduled goalie summer camps. We will be adding rink programs to the schedule as time and staffing issues allow us to do so. Thank you for your patience and continued support. Our goal is to be fully operation, including public skating, by September 2021.

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. Our ice rink is the home of Schenectady Youth Hockey Association, Burnt Hills/Ballston Spa High School Hockey and numerous Adult Ice Hockey Leagues.

  • $5.00 General Admission
  • $3.00 for Senior Citizens
  • $3.00 for children under the age of 5.
  • Skate rentals are available at an additional $5.00 per pair.

Skate Aids:
We have buckets available for the first-time or beginning ice skaters. Stacking buckets, as bucket availability permits, allows for height adjustment. A limited number of sleds are available (allowing a skater to stand upright and hold onto two, parallel bars) and be pushed by an adult-age skater).

Handicapped/Wheelchair Ice Access:
Upon request, we have permitted wheelchair access on the ice. Those in wheelchairs must be accompanied and propelled by an adult.
