The Nasser Civic Center Ice Rink in Corning has received $3,000 from the Crystal City Parks Foundation to help pay for phase two of the rink’s renovations.
Phase two of the rink’s renovations is expected to begin this summer, and it includes repainting the roof trusses and making repairs to the roof columns.
The total estimated cost of the improvements for Phase II is $160,000. The City previously received a contribution of $150,000 from Corning Enterprises and has budgeted $7,000 in Parks Department funds.
“For many years now the Crystal City Parks Foundation has been working closely with our Parks and Recreation department,“ said Corning Mayor Bill Boland. “Their contributions have directly and meaningfully made our parks more appealing. They are a great and appreciated civic partner.‘”
The rink was closed from March to late November 2018 for renovations, which included the removal of the old refrigeration plant, dasher boards, and the two existing concrete floor slabs.
