1. Go ice-skating at Wollman Rink or Lasker Rink
Located at the southern end of the park, Wollman is a magical spot in which to practice figure eights and people watch while enjoying a day on ice with the kids. It's less crowded and cramped than the Rock Center rink, and the mix of urban and rural views are one-of-a-kind. Families looking to get off the beaten path can head to Lasker, at the park's northern end, for a fun, safe skating space for the novice as well as the practicing pro. Ages 2 and up.
