Big Progress at Riverworks in Buffalo


BUFFALO, N.Y. - Work is continuing on the Riverworks Complex along the Buffalo River. Part of it will open soon, and another part will open on New Year's Day.

The facility on Ganson Street hosted the pond hockey tournament last February. Since then, a lot has changed. The ice rinks are almost done. They'll be open on November 24th. Crews are working on the main indoor venue... which can host events.
That will be open January First.

Those behind Riverworks say they're happy to be part of everything that's happening downtown and nearby.
