Clute Park in Watkins Glen opens

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

The Clute Park Ice Rink in Watkins Glen has officially opened its doors for the 2024 season, marking the start of a much-anticipated winter tradition. The opening, initially delayed due to weather conditions and necessary rink repairs, began on February 2, promising a season filled with ice skating fun for families and individuals. The village has announced that the rink will operate every Friday through Sunday, with special hours for the opening weekend and extended hours during school breaks.


For those eager to glide on the ice, the rink has set a nominal fee: $7 for those needing to rent skates and $5 for those bringing their own equipment. To ensure everyone’s safety, the park mandates that all skaters wear gloves while on the ice. A waiver is also required for all participants, with first-timers needing to complete this form upon arrival.

As the season progresses, updates on hours of operation, especially concerning inclement weather, will be available on the Village of Watkins Glen’s website and the Seneca Lake Events Facebook page. The community is encouraged to stay informed and take advantage of this winter delight nestled by the scenic beauty of Seneca Lake.
