Directions

It's Central Park! Just look for the big mass of trees in New York City. Kidding! We'll tell you. The best entrance is Central Park South (59th Street) and 6th Avenue.

The ice-rink is a two minute walk from the entrance. Just follow the footpath directly into the park and stay to the right. Note there is no parking available at rink or the park.

Where are we going today?

Have you ever wanted to rug up, put some skates on and join in with all those other kids and families enjoying the iconic Central Park ice-skating?  So have we!

It's a great way to stay active in those cold winter months!

Beginners are more than welcome, so don't feel bad if you have never skated before!  They also offer classes and courses in skating, figure skating and ice hockey, so if you love it and want to see yourself getting better - you certainly can!

You can rent out skates and padding at the rink, so all you need to do is bring yourselves and your big winter smiles!

If you really love it you could always hold your birthday party here!  Bring your friends down and show them how good you are at skating!  You might be able to even teach your friends a thing or two!

So get out and enjoy New York in the winter!  Kids love the feel of gliding along the smooth ice.  Don't feel bad if you fall over.  It's very slippery and most people do! Just get back up and keep going - you will get better!

    If you are traveling from out of town like my family was, skip Wollman unless you are looking for long lines. The staff is less than friendly. It's expensive to get on the ice and rent skates. They take only cash. The skating sessions are short relative to the frequent Zamboni ice cleanings.

    Very poor experience with this rink. Pay booth staff were rude and abrupt. The price was jacked up $7 per person for the holiday. The rink staff were also very rude and wouldn't let us try learn to skate backwards in the corner of the rink. Overall, very expensive and poorly run.

    Wollman Rink has served as an incredible destination for me throughout my childhood and into my early adolescence. The prices have always been reasonable, and the staffers kind. Putting on my ice skates and venturing out onto the rink, I have been gracefully given the opportunity to explore a new interest, get a decent workout, and have a blast. I've had countless birthday parties, and day outings. During the summer, when the ice is removed and a theme park is instituted, the fun simply continues year round!

I give my highest recommendations to anyone that Wollman Rink is a fantastic location.
