Roller skating at Swinburne Park

Swinburne Park skating rink summer

News to us: The city ice skating rink in Albany's Swinburne Park also offers roller skating during the summer.

It's open Monday-Friday from 3-5 pm and 7-9 pm, Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 pm and 7-9 pm. Admission is $1 for adults / 50 cents for kids / 25 cents for seniors / skate rental is $3.

If you've never been by the rink before, it's along the 2nd Street side of the park's western (Manning Boulevard) end, next to the spray pad. There's a parking lot (access off Clinton Ave and 2nd Street) nearby.

It's covered, so there's plenty of shade. Could be a fun thing for kids (and adults) on a rainy day. The rink can also be reserved for events.
