POND HOCKEY IN CENTRAL PARK |  NYC's best kept secret!

There is something very special about playing hockey outdoors… Remember heading down to the pond with your skates over your shoulder? Pushing the newly-fallen snow off the pond, setting your boots as goal posts, and hearing the imaginary roar of the crowd as you score the first goal?  Relive this experience in Central Park at Wollman Rink!
