This seasonal ice skating rink in Central Park boasts a panoramic view of the city skyline.
Wollman Rink is a public ice rink in the southern part of Central Park, Manhattan, New York City. The rink was opened in 1949 with funds donated by Kate Wollman (1869 – 1955) who donated $600,000 for the rink to commemorate her entire family from Leavenworth, Kansas. Kate's brother was William J. Wollman, who operated the W.J. Wollman & Co. stock exchange firm, originally in Kansas City and later in New York. After he died in 1937, she helped administer his estate. Historically, the rink has been open for ice skating from October to April, and in the summer seasons it is transformed into Victoria Gardens, an amusement park.
The Wollman Rink is currently operated by the Trump Organization, whose contract is scheduled to expire on April 30, 2021
Outside the skating season the same place is used for the Victorian Gardens Amusement Park, an old-timey summer venue offering concessions & carnival-style games, plus rides & live entertainment.
