    Wollman Skating Rink is a public ice rink in the southern part of Central Park, Manhattan, New York City. The rink was opened in 1949 with funds donated by Kate Wollman. Historically, the rink has been open for ice skating from October to April and in the summer seasons is transformed into a venue for other purposes.

    The Rink has been used as the venue for several summer concerts. The first annual Schaefer Music Festival opened on June 27, 1968 and ran each summer through 1976. The venue no longer hosts concerts, but it is still used for public ice skating in the winter and in the summer it houses the Victorian Gardens Amusement Park. (Wikipedia)
