Wollman Rink

Wollman Rink is the biggest, oldest and most popular public skating rink in Central Park.

Wollman Rink was created back in 1950 in order to replace the Lake, that was used as a skating rink before. The skating season in Central Park usually lasts from October to April. The rink was created with donations from the Wollman family and thus carries their name. It went under a large-scale renovation that turned it into a piece of art, and is currently operated by The Trump Organization.
In the summer it becomes the Victorian Gardens amusement park. It is equipped with a wide assortment of rides, including Rising Water and Whac-a-Mole.

Besides ice skating, Wollman Rink offers ice hockey, figure skating, skating lessons, rentals, lockers, and party facilities.

Wollman Rink has a significant pop culture value, and has appeared in several movies, with the most prominent being “Serendipity”, and “Home Alone 2”.
