Ice Skating in Central Park

Tuesday November 15, 2016
Ice skating season is finally here. For many New Yorkers and tourist skating on Wollman Rink is a must do while in NYC. Ice skating is a long tradition at Central Park - as old has the Park itself.

The first part of Central Park to open to the public was the Lake, in 1858. That same winter, it filled with skaters. Soon after, skaters filled the 59th Street Pond as well. A century later, these water bodies were closed to skaters. Wollman Rink opened in 1950, a 33,000-square-foot venue built with a gift from Kate Wollman.

With an incredible backdrop of the city, why not enjoy this fall/winter skating on this iconic Rink.
