Leisure Rinks was built in 1973 and opened in late 1973 at a time when there were 22 Ice Rinks in the planning stages to be built in Western New York. Leisure was the ONLY ONE of these projects, built privately, to survive. Over the years Leisure has been home to the Buffalo Sabres (practice ice), the West Seneca Cougars Junior A team, District V youth association among others. It is now the home of one of the fastest growing youth groups in NY, the Southtowns Stars.
Holiday Twin Rinks was constructed in 1971 during the fevered excitement of the Buffalo Sabres newly announced NHL expansion franchise. The Arena struggled in its early years and was forced into bankruptcy in 1974. The rink was then taken over and operated by Marine Midland Bank (HSBC) for one year and was eventually sold to the partnership that had built and operated Leisure Rinks successfully for 3 years. At the time of construction Holiday was the largest ice rink facility in Western New York and remains the home of the oldest and finest youth association in the Northeast - the Buffalo Regals.
