Wollman Rink – In Central Park

Everyone knows theres an amazing ice skating rink in central park. But that’s for the winter. What you don’t know is that summer has a story here too at Wollman Rink! It opened on May 27th!

The summer brings merry-go-rounds, Kite Flyer, Mini Mouse roller coasted, the octpus and all sorts of rides, only made better by tatse treats like cotton candy, hot dogs and pops!

The rink most famous is the Wollman since it was seen in movies such as Serendipity and August Rush. It’s also the more peaceful of the two. It’s so beautiful to watch the people walking by, as wonder fills the air instead of the clutter of the city. At eye level you’re surrounded by a view of the trees while when you raise your eyes just a bit you find the magical skyline is still there to greet you. Brick skyscrapers towering and watching over you as you enjoy the season’s finest gifts!

The weather is perfect and you want to relax like a kid would… definitely don’t expect adrenaline rushes if you’re over 13 years of age, but its nice to see on your stroll through the part on these nice summer days. 

It’s a wonderful place for all – families, couples, and single youngins. It’s a welcoming place where you can really focus on spending your just being a kid!
