In November 2009 the Rink at the Brink opened up in Niagara Falls Canada, in hopes of being a ‘must see’ winter attraction similar to the Rideau Canal in Ottawa and the Rockefeller Center in New York. The attraction became a little disappointing when we learned that due to the mist from the falls, it needed to be covered up by a white roof and enclosed in plexiglas.
Niagara Falls, New York, hopes that their idea is better. Construction of an ice rink DeVeaux Woods State Park, just a little further from the falls, just finished. Because the rink is far enough from the falls there is no need for a roof and enclosure. Hopefully skating at the rink becomes an annual tradition for residences and visitors to Niagara Falls.
