During the past 6 months Western New Yorks have been limited in their range of recreational options, but today a couple of favorite spots are again open and available.

Both spots afford locals with options to beat the changing Fall weather.

We're told that the Center at 1 Pool Plaza at Delaware Road and Sheridan Drive will be open to the public until Oct. 4 at no charge.

Oct. 5 is reportedly when new membership rates will go into effect.

The pool will open at 8 a.m. with a special senior swim until 11:30 a.m.

Masks are required when entering the building but obviously are not required while in the pool.

In a separate story News 4 (WIVB-TV) tells us that the always popular Paddock Golf Dome is scheduled to reopen for the season at 9 a.m. on Thursday, October 1st!

The golf dome has been closed since March of this year due to COVID-19.

Following COVID-19 guidelines, the facility will open to limited capacity.  The indoor driving range and miniature golf, are on a first-come, first-served basis.

According to protocol masks are required when entering the facility, but will not be a requirement in the driving range stall.
