Skating at Indian Meadows Park

The public skating rinks at Indian Meadows Park on Droms Rd. are now open. The season’s early ice storm and heavy snows delayed opening, but the rinks will now be available from sunrise through 9 pm daily, weather and ice conditions permitting. One rink is designated for open skating, and one for hockey. When the entrance gates are closed, the rinks are closed. 

The rinks will close on warm days to prevent deterioration of the ice and reopen when conditions allow. There is no charge for public skating, and a warming hut is available during peak usage.

Ski and Snowshoe at Indian Meadows Park

The town of Glenville’s Indian Meadows Park, 155 Droms Road, will be offering groomed cross-country ski (and snowshoe) trails for the first time effective immediately.

A volunteer ski enthusiast will be grooming the lengthy trail system which will soon result in approximately 3 miles of usable surface for both traditional and skating style skiing, as well as snowshoe racing.

Neighbors to the park should note that snowmobile use for grooming will only occur in the early evening time period, and that no other motorized, off-road vehicle use is allowed in the park. Park hours are sunrise to sunset.

Additionally, cross country ski and snowshoe “citizen’s races” will be held in the park in conjunction with Winterfest, scheduled for February 7th from 11-3. More Winterfest details to follow.
