After a near 20 year hiatus an outdoor skating rink has returned to West Albany Pocket Park. You need to bring your own ice skates as there is no place to rent skates from. Skating at the park is daily until dusk and is also dependent on ice and weather conditions.
The entrance to the park is on Exchange Street, Albany, NY 12205 (between Fairfield Ave and Prospect Ave). The ice skating rink is located right next to the parking lot on the basketball courts.
Below is a picture of the entrance to the ice skating rink near the parking lot. I would recommend going to the other end of the rink to enter since there is an incline.
