BUFFALO, NY - The first phase of the $18 million RiverWorks sports and entertainment complex got a workout Monday night, hosting members of the Buffalo Curling Club on one of its two outdoor, covered ice rinks.
Located on Ganson Street in the heart of a long time industrial area, RiverWorks marks another effort to transform the Queen City's waterfront into a place for the public to party and to play.
While the ice pavilion represents the first phase of the project, other portions are due to come on line in 2015.
By late February, in time for the Labatt Pond Hockey tournament that has found a new home here, another key component of the project will be ready.
It includes a 6,000-seat auditorium, suitable for concerts and conventions, with a roller derby rink, restaurant, and three bars.
