Winter Blast 2019 at the MLK Jr. Park Basin & Casino

On Saturday, February 16, the entire community is invited to attend the annual Winter Blast at Martin Luther King Jr. Park. Not only has this park undergone impressive transformations over the last few years, including major investments into its ice skating facilities, there will also be an opportunity to step inside the MLK Jr. Park Casino, which I’m betting a lot of people have never even seen because it was essentially closed off to the general public for years. Throughout the day there will be plenty of indoor and outdoor activities, all presented by presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, the Olmsted Parks Buffalo, and Mayor Byron W. Brown.

The MLK Jr. Park Basin is a designated BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York Healthy Zone, and it serves as a old-fashion pond skating rink in the winter and splash pad in the summer.

All activities are free, and include:
