SPORTS SHORTS – 1932 RENOVATION

The Olympic Center’s 1932 rink is being restored..  The structure is being restored to its original appearance in the 1930’s. Some of the work includes the installation of windows that have been enclosed by brink since prior to the 1980 Olympic Winter Games.  The revitalization project is being financed through the remaining funds from a grant through Empire State Development, which funded the construction of the newly completedConferenceCenteratLake Placid.

When complete the 1932 facility, along with its conventional use for skating and hockey and akin to the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena, will join the conference center to provide nearly 100,000 square feet of convention space.  The fresh look will complement the conference center, which opened for business May 2011 and will refortify the icon that it is for decades to come.
