The Ice Skating Rink at Harlem's Riverbank State Park Is Open for the Season

Updated: Dec 9, 2023

Harlem's Only (for Now) Ice Skating Rink Reopens this Weekend

It's time to throw on a scarf and lace up your skates because the ice skating rink at Riverbank State Park is open for the season.

There are two sessions per day on the weekends, plus one on Friday evenings, according to the flyer posted on the park's social media.

As has been the case for the last two years, the NHL-size outdoor rink in West Harlem is the only place to ice skate in Upper Manhattan while construction continues on the new Harlem Meer Center (formerly Lasker Rink and Pool) in Central Park.

Note: the rink has a roof that protects skaters from the elements.

The regular hours are as follows:

Fridays 5:30pm-8:30pm

Saturdays & Sundays 12:30pm-3:30pm, 5:30pm-8:30pm

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children (under 12). Skate rentals are $6.
