Lace up your skates: Roller blading has returned to Prospect Park

Searching for a fun end-of-summer activity? Skating has resumed in Prospect Park, so now's the time to show off those moves you've perfected during quarantine. (C'mon, we know you've got 'em!)

Families can make the way to the LeFrak Center at Lakeside every day from noon–6pm for a loop around the rink. Admission is $6 and $10 on the weekends; skate rentals are $7. It's the perfect way to spend a long holiday weekend. Plus, the outdoor hub boasts plenty of other cool things to do for families: kayaking, boating and biking, to name a few. When the kiddos need to refuel, you can grab a takeaway meal from Bluestone Grill. (A one-stop-shop for the perfect day trip, if you ask us.) 

Not Kings County bound? No sweat: There are plenty of other awesome parks and playgrounds throughout the city. You'll want to soak up that freedom while you still can. Although the start of the school year has been delayed, it still approaching quickly. Wherever you decide to venture, we highly recommend polishing off your activities with a scoop of something sweet from one of our favorite ice cream shops in New York City.
