Harlem Is Down to One Ice Skating Rink This Season

Updated: Nov 22, 2021

Ice skating season in Harlem looks a bit different this year.

The old Lasker Rink and Pool in Central Park is being totally redeveloped, with the complex closed until 2024.

(Note to all ice skating fans: The new Harlem Meer Center, as it will be called, won't just have a rink, but also a skating ribbon around one section of the lake.)

That means the Riverbank State Park Skating Rink in West Harlem, located high above the banks of the Hudson River (enter at Riverside Drive and 145th Street), is the only ice skating facility to be found uptown this season.

The good news is that it's now open for the season.

The ice skating rink at Riverbank State Park is the perfect spot to enjoy what's left of winter

The shaded NHL-size rink is offering sessions from Friday to Sunday, plus holidays.

The hours are as follows:

Fridays 6pm-9pm

Saturdays & Sundays 1pm-4pm, 6pm-9pm

Holidays 11am-2pm, 3pm-6pm

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