PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The city and Ed Snider’s youth hockey foundation are going halves on a more than $12-million dollar project to revitalize Philadelphia’s municipal ice rinks.

Work will be done on five rinks throughout the city. Chairman of Comcast-Spectacor Ed Snider says three of them, which are currently outdoor rinks, will be enclosed and two others will be remodeled.

“Rinks will be available all year round for the children in these communities. They’ll be heated, state-of-the-art,” Snider said.

Snider says this project should extend the reach of his hockey foundation.

“And to see them progress and enjoy themselves, and do well in school, it’s a wonderful feeling, quite frankly,” Snider said.

His foundation provides all the equipment, education and ice time free of charge.
