Puja gift to Kolkatans: Ice skating rink at Rajarhat


Kolkata: Rajarhat is now going to get a new ice skating rink very soon. The Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (Hidco) is developing an ice skating rink next to Eco Park in Rajarhat New Town. According to sources, a private firm, which has been shortlisted for constructing the rink, has already started working on it and if work progresses as per plan, it will be a ‘Puja gift’ for the city, according to Hidco sources.

The ice skating rink will have a clientele of all age groups. “It will be a complete fun zone and the ticket cost will be reasonable. There will be separate zones for adults and children for skating. Trainers will supervise all participants. There will be skating shoes of different sizes for visitors,” an official said.  The project is coming up on a public-private partnership model where the Hidco authorities have given the land on rent and the private firm is investing to set up the rink. Hidco has given the company a go-ahead after it presented a slide show.
