Strap on your skates! Brooklyn Bridge Park’s first-ever ice skating rink is now open. Located under the Brooklyn Bridge at Emily Warren Roebling Plaza, the rink, called Glide at Brooklyn Bridge Park, offers skating for guests of all ages, rinkside food and beverages from the nearby Time Out Market, and spectacular Manhattan skyline views. The rink is open through March 1, 2024.
Last spring, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation issued a request for proposals (RFP), seeking out partners interested in constructing and operating a seasonal ice-skating rink in Emily Warren Roebling Plaza.
Under the RFP guidelines, Glide BK will be responsible for assembling and operating the temporary rink from November through mid-March and disassembling it. The management group is responsible for ticketing, maintenance, renting skate equipment, and programming, according to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s website.
Tickets start at $15 for adults and $10 for children during off-peak hours. The rink offers special pricing for groups and can be rented for large events. Additionally, a limited amount of discounted tickets (starting at $9) will be available daily for NYC residents with proof of residency.
