This Weekend In Parks

Ice Skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park.

Ice Skating
As the weather gets colder, ice skating season takes off throughout the city. This winter, come to our outdoor rinks for a spin around the rink! Whether you’re an experienced skater, or someone taking to the ice for the first time, there’s a rink that’s right for you. Remember to be safe this winter, and not to go out onto the ice unless the area is safe and specifically designated for public skating.

19th Annual Quilt Show: “Green Quilts”
Join us at Lefferts Historic House in Prospect Park, Brooklyn each weekend in November for the 19th Annual Quilt Show! This year’s show will features quilts that draw inspiration from recycled materials and celebrate the environment. You can learn how to make your own quilt and make this traditional American craft a part of modern life.

As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
