NYC Central Park Attractions: Wollman Ice Rink
If you've seen TV or movie footage of people having fun in New York City, chances are good that you've seen the Wollman Rink in Central Park! The Wollman Rink is a public ice-skating rink in the heart of New York City. It is a staple in popular culture and has been featured in many movies and television shows over the years. Since 1949, tourists and native New Yorkers have visited the iconic Central Park skating rink, where skaters can glide across the ice while surrounded by the twinkling lights and romantic grandeur of the Manhattan skyline.
If you're interested in Central Park ice-skating, Wollman Rink will be waiting for you from October until early April (weather permitting). Many people have laced up their skates for the very first time on this ice: The 33,000-square-foot venue offers skating school programs for both adults and kids. The facility also offers ice hockey, skate rentals, lockers, and party facilities.
For many years after it was created, Wollman Rink was known as the Wollman Skating Rink Theater in the summer and hosted many outdoor concerts, featuring artists including Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday, Led Zeppelin, and many more. Today, the rink no longer hosts concerts, but in the summer, it transforms into the family-friendly Victorian Gardens amusement park.
