Lasker Pool in Central Park.

A dual-purpose Central Park recreational site, the Lasker area serves as both a pool during the summer and an ice skating rink during the winter. Located mid-park between 106th and 108th Streets, the site overlooks the beautiful Harlem Meer and is favorite of active park-goers all year round.

Currently, the Lasker Pool features a wading pool and Olympic pool for visitors to enjoy every summer from the end of June through Labor Day. The free pool provides a deck area, lockers and a concession stand. Make sure to bring your own lock and towel!

For kids who get hungry while swimming, the Department of Education has a free summer lunch program at the pool where children 18 and under can get breakfast and lunch for free on weekdays.
