Central Park Ice Skating

Are you interested in skating amid both the trees and the skyscrapers?

Central Park ice skating offers the best of two worlds - you can skate in a lovely park but still feel like you're in the middle of a big city.

The setting of the rink at the very south end of Central Park makes this possible. The rink is surrounded by trees but still close enough to Midtown Manhattan for the skyline to tower above.

The Trump Rink has a fabulous view and is sure to lure in all romantics.

If you're not skating, you can still watch the scene. The path just north of the rink takes you to a paved area above the rink where you can view the skaters below and the buildings behind them. Even farther north, steps from the path lead up to a rocky outcropping that is a fantastic vantage point for taking in the whole scene. Just watch your step!
