Lasker Rink

Lasker Rink opens up in the winter for ice skating, a favorite pastime in Central Park.

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 the summer months, Lasker Rink transforms into Lasker Pool, which offers free public swimming.

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 for new community-focused programming during the spring and fall. Learn more about this project.
