Lasker Rink and Pool



Lasker Rink and Pool opened in 1966 between the Loch and 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 a popular neighborhood retreat from New York summers.


Lasker Pool is operated by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. For information, please visit their website.
