Great place

What a facility. If you like ice hockey or swimming. It's actually a warm rink and the concessions are excellent for a sports facility.

For a small town this facility is amazing. It has a pool that can host state level swim events. My son used to practice there most of the year. Huge skating rink and also a hockey rink makes it an amazing destination in town.

If you like to ice skate or learn professionally great place to go, if you want to have your kids learn how to play hockey from 5 years old and up, this is a great place, and if you like semi pro future star players the Rochester Ice Hawks are usually the best team on the circet each year. a...

Heat broke down in the pool area...swimmers were cold. They could have a least brought in large heaters to keep the swimmers a bit warmer.

The recreation center has an olympic-size swim pool, large gymnasium and ice rink. Nothing fancy to boast about, but serves its purpose for swim meets.
