Roosevelt Island Sportspark Facility One Step Closer To Re-Opening - NYC Building Inspection Completed, Con Ed Gas Hookup Being Done Now

During March 23 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Board of Directors Meeting (Video web cast of meeting here), RIOC President Susan Rosenthal reported that she hoped to have an announcement about the Sportspark

facility opening date by Monday or Tuesday of this week.

Anxious Roosevelt Island Sportspark users were disappointed when no announcement was made earlier this week about Sportspark re-opening, but today we learned from Ms. Rosenthal:
ConEd is there as I type. Allegedly, it takes 3 days to hook up the gas. We are hoping for a next Friday opening but I can’t promise until the work is done. Thankfully, the Department of Buildings piece is completed.
Ms Rosenthal emphasized that Sportspark is one step closer to opening but there is not a definite opening date yet. RIOC is hopeful to open by next Friday, but no promises.

As previously reported, Sportspark renovations were to be completed and the facility open last November but were delayed for a variety of reasons including problems scheduling NYC Building Department inspection.

UPDATE 4/6, 5:15 PM - Looks like Sportspark will open Monday April 10. Will have more info soon.

UPDATE 6:30 PM - Confirmed. More info here.
