Closed for the 2010/2011 season.
Outdoors, seasonal -
Located in Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
The rink has a wonderful view of Prospect Lake which gives you the feeling
that you could skate right out of the rink and onto the lake.
The ice quality is good and the ice seems well maintained.
Skate rental is available - figure skates only.
There is a cafe, Kate's Corner, for food and drinks.
The music they played on a session crowded with kids
was mostly Big Band and country.
There are free lockers, for which you should bring your own padlock.
When driving, enter the park at
the corner of Parkside and Ocean Avenues,
and follow the signs to the rink.
There is plenty of free parking available.
In addition, the Q train station Parkside Avenue leaves you at the park
