With roller skating surging in popularity—thanks in no small part to viral videos of skaters like Berlin-based Oumi Janta—you may have found yourself wondering where to safely practice your skills.

Happily, Harlem's only outdoor roller skating rink reopened for the season this spring and now has expanded summer hours, through September 8.

The Riverbank State Park Skating Rink (Riverside Drive and 145th St)—covered with ice during the winter—is currently welcoming roller skaters seven days a week, with two special adults-only sessions two days a week:

All ages:

Monday–Friday 4pm-6pm

Saturday & Sunday Session 1: 2pm-4pm

Session 2: 5pm-7pm

Adults only (18 and older):

Wednesday & Friday 7pm-9pm

Admission is $1.50 and skate rentals are $6 per person. No reservations are required.
