Alix Rice Peace Park



Skateboarder and BMX biker Stephan Gray of Cheektowaga shows off his skills at the opening of the Alix Rice Peace Park on Saturday at the Northtown Center. In memory of 18-year-old Alix Rice, the skate park will serve as a permanent legacy. In July 2011, Rice was riding her longboard home from work when she was struck and killed by a drunken driver on Heim Road.
