Wollman Rink

Central Park Wollman Skating Rink

Wollman Skating Rink, by kokyat

The skating rink is now closed for the season.  Will re-open at the end of October.  

It's New York magic at its best - to glide gracefully across the ice under a star-encrusted sky while surrounded by the splendor of Manhattan.

Central Park's Wollman Rink is the perfect place to create such enchantment.

The skating rink, open from late October to early April, is less than a five-minute walk from the south entrance of W. 59th Street and 6th Avenue. The rink opens daily at 10:00 AM and closing times vary (see below).

Skaters who admit to being a bit klutzy are always welcome at the rink. For those wanting to improve their skills the rink offers a skating school seven days a week. Classes for all ages range from parents and toddlers to basic skills for adults. Other classes available are adult/youth figure and synchronized skating and hockey. Skate and lock rentals are also available.

During the summer months, fun on the ice is replaced with the Victorian Gardens. Amusement activities geared for children 2 – 12 years old whirl and swirl and tug and toot in the air, on land and over water.
