Newest Skating Rink – The Oxbow

Thanks to the hard work of my nextdoor neighbors, The VanStrydonks, we have a skating rink outside our back door. They’ve cleared away all the snow this morning, and there’s an ice hockey game going on right now.

I guess it’s a ‘public rink’ so anyone could use it, just walk down from Perinton Park for 5 minutes, and there’s an old dock where you could get down the embankment.  If you don’t fancy that crossing, just knock on my door at 28 Erie Crescent, and you can walk across my back yard.

Bring a snow pusher to help keep it clean!

The canal is about 3 feet deep at this spot, so is fairly safe.

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see www.mud-skipper.com). I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my wife Carol and our two dogs.
