The old Kate Wollman Rink in Prospect Park has been demolished to make room for a spectacular new ice-skating rink and entertainment complex. Much of Wollman Rink had buried some of the park's natural beauty and resources, and the goal was to restore the area to its former glory, as it was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in 1866. The new 26-acre space—known as Lakeside and costing more than $74 million to build—includes three additional acres of green space, an eco-friendly building that connects to a recreation area, a music island, concert grove and waterfront esplanade. Additionally, two skating rinks—one open-air and the other covered—will be open year-round. In the summer, the outdoor rink will double as a water playground, and the indoor rink will be used for roller-skating.
