MessageGlad to see the rink is being restored.

I have fantastic memories of skating there as a kid in the 70's.

Some of the best times in my life were growing up in Southwick !

Congrats and a big Thank You to all those doing this fine work.

All the best,

MessageWhen I lived in East Granby for a short time, I was very interested in the news of the restoration.
Sounds like it's coming right along.
Good luck and I hope the 4th of July party is a blowout!

MessageGreat place. Used to live on South Pond many years ago. Actually skated there when it was open then. If we lived closer I'd jump in. This will definitely be a huge attraction for everyone in the area and kudos to those pitching in.

Messagesmilie Lots of nice memories of skating down at Babbs-Used to belong to clubs down there and assits teacher with teaching basic skating and classic dance. I have been on skates since 1945 when my father was doorman at Riverside Rink when it was at park. Still dreaming of when we will have it back.It will be worth the effort in the long run. Restoring park will also be worthwhile and if run right could even make money for city. I would like to see more support from club-CRC If we get grant then can afford to hire people. ifyou want to look at a park site as example of what can be -self supporting park Bob B
