1) Prospect Park Lakeside has ice skating, hockey and curling in the Winter months

Contact our Skate School specialists at (718) 462-0090 or skate@lakesidebrooklyn.com.

  • They have parking. Stairs a bit steep to the rink.
  • There are two rinks – not too crowded when both are open (when one closes for cleaning, it’s a bit crowded)
  • The food in the cafe is expensive but good.
  • To get a locker – go to a kiosk and pay and get assigned a number and code.
  • They have a skate school – no appt is needed. Children just wait for a slot.

During school breaks, Mark Treyger often makes announcements like this on his Facebook page:




3) Aviator Sport has 1/2 hour lessons for $20  each or 10 lessons for $170 (age 4 and up)

Admission $8.00 for adults and $6.00 for kids – Skate rental $5

Aviator usually has a special online through Amazon Local deals – if this one has expired, just search for Aviator on that site because they keep renewing the deal. 



5) Bryant Park – 40th Street and 5th Avenue, Manhattan

There was free ice skating here last year. This is only a deal if you own skates. If you don’t own skates, they rent them for $14.00 (yes that’s crazy, but it’s NYC and a lot of tourists are there). The rink is large so there’s plenty of room to skate and enjoy yourself.
