Saratoga Recreation & Weibel Avenue Ice Rink
Spring Soccer, Camp Saradac, and Summer Camps and programs are still open but we will continue to monitor the situation.
The Weibel Avenue Ice Rink will be closed for all rentals and programming effective Saturday, March 14, 2020.
On August, 17th, 2018, City Hall suffered significant damage from a lightning strike. As a result of this damage, City Hall was closed and its employees and operations were temporally moved to the Recreation Center. Recently, the City Council has estimated that it may take up to 18 months to restore City Hall functions so they have decided to keep the City Hall employees and operations at the Recreation Center.
As a result of this decision, the Recreation Center will not be available for any recreational activities including drop-in sessions, indoor programming, and rentals. It will, however, be open for program registration. Registrations can be made in person Monday-Friday from 9am-6pm at the Recreation Center. They can also be mailed to the Recreation Center at 15 Vanderbilt Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
We are very sorry for this inconvenience. Please know your recreational needs are very important to us. We are committed to serving our community, and are actively seeking alternative locations for our program participants, specifically our Volleyball and Youth Basketball programs which use the gymnasium.
Again, we truly apologize for this inconvenience, and appreciate your support and patience. We hope that in a year to a year and a half we are back to serving your recreational needs at the Recreation Center. Should you have any questions feel free to contact me at 518-587-3550 x2300 or email@example.com.
For additional information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518-587-3550 x2300.
