Lasker Rink and Pool

Skating on the Lasker Rink

Perfect for New Yorkers looking to cool down in the summer, Lasker Pool offers free public swimming seven days a week. Athletic Park-goers have special, protected hours for swimming laps in the morning and evening; children and adults of all ages can learn swimming basics with free lessons. The pool also has special programs for teens, seniors, and adults with disabilities.

Lasker Rink opens in the winter for ice-skating and hockey. Two oval ice rinks open daily — one reserved for high school hockey teams and the other for all ages. Visitors come for open skating, private lessons, or coed leagues. Lockers and skate rentals are available.

In 2021, Lasker Rink and Pool will be redeveloped into to a state-of-the-art facility that will continue to accommodate recreational and lap swimming, and support a robust skating and hockey program. In addition, the new facility will be open year-round to support new community-focused programming during the spring and fall. To learn more about this project, please click here.
