Lasker Rink and Pool


Lasker Rink and Pool opened in 1966 and occupies a site that destroyed one of Olmsted and Vaux's magnificent landscape experiences by blocking the views from the Loch to the Harlem Meer.

While Wollman Rink (in the lower Park between East 62nd and 63rd Streets) converts its ice rink into a venue for summertime activities, Lasker Rink is transformed into a public swimming pool. In its ice-skating mode, Lasker has two oval rinks: one for high school hockey teams and one for all ages. The swimming pool is the most popular neighborhood retreat from New York's summers.


Mid-Park between 106th and 108th Streets.
