Ice skating here is a nice alternative to the over-crowded rinks in Manhattan. It's worth the trip here for several reasons. First, there are 2 rinks that you can cross over to. One is outdoors so you can enjoy the sun while you skate, or if you want to avoid the sun, you can go to the covered rink. When the Zambonis come to resurface the ice, they do it one rink at a time so you don't have to get off the ice like at other rinks. The lockers work off bills and is a nice convenience if you want to stash small items like sneakers and a small bag. Large bags will not fit.

fun and enjoyable two drinks and ability to go from one to the other and never stop skating while one rink is being resurfaced the other one is available for use, continuous skating all day at a great price

LeFrak Center at Prospect Park is the place to be in the summer or winter! Most recently for the winter months, an inaugural curling league has started! Holding it's first Learn to Curl event in November 2014, CurlNYC offers instructional leagues. In addition, LeFrak offers ice skating and hockey. It is a beautiful facility with warm rooms for those chilly days as well as a really nice snack bar that puts roller skating rinks from the 1990s to shame! You can also grab a glass of beer or wine after you are done playing for the afternoon! Not what I was expecting to find in Prospect Park!

A hideous monstrosity in both visual and audible terms: not only is the building way too large and brutalist -- it looks rather like a parking lot -- the blasting music is an offence to the entire park experience. I can't believe the Prospect Park Conservancy participated in this. (What part of "conserve" don't they understand?)

With march weather bringing in spring after so many cold months, my one regret is that I didn't go skating here more often. The facility is nice and unlike central park/bryant park, you can actually skate around without feeling like you are just walking in a circle packed into a rink with tons of people. The ice quality was very good too. I'm interested to see what they will offer in the warmer months and will try to get there to experience it again. The entry process was smooth, the locker system was easy to navigate, and the design of the rink that lets you go from a hockey sized rink into a more oval shaped fully outdoor rink is a nice design in my eyes.

waste of millions of dollars, never will go again (b"l)! built stupid, managed like a Brooklyn post office. went with three kids on Dec 22, 2013, was a large crowd but not more of the ordinary weekend crowd. 1) had to wait more than half an hour just to buy tickets and get in with about 6 families in front of me (like 20 ppl) , never happened to me even in the worst places to wait so long with this number of a crowd inside, and people in the line! 2) I called all day to the number listed, to ask if there open ? and if the sharpening store is open? (I called a week before to ask if they sharpen skates), after two hour hours of continuous dialing, finally got an answer that the shop is open all day, btw it was a 212 number with a girl sitting in a different location that knows nothing !!! bcs the place doesn't even have a sharpening store ! 3) very small space for changing, compared to the overall size of the establishment and to other rinks. Front lockers are blocked when people sit on the benches. they are ridiculous close. 4) rented two pairs of skating shoes, usually you give in your own shoes in replacement and vice-versa when returning, this place they don't and they just say go ! deal with your own shoes, I wonder how long before they run out of skates, bcs they have no way enforcing the return of skates lol lol lol (its Brooklyn after all) 5) electronic lockers- who needs more complications in life??? took me 30 minutes to buy a locker with the machine that doesn't even say which way to swipe the card, oh' and needed to stand in another line for that ! finally got a locker $5 (everywhere else its for free just bring your own lock) so... it was so tiny could fit only 3 pairs of shoes, and we had a load of coats and a carry bag and some snacks. 6) was told that i can check-in a bag-ok great im okay paying another $5, went to the check-in counter.... was told to go outside and buy the check-in option at the cashier, but I was with skating shoes already on, and the cashier is on the concrete area outside!!! too bad- they told me. 7) when at the cashier on the concrete, ....saw kids walking around on the concrete with the rented skating shoes....this place is really a zoo! either they put soft floors where they need to, or block off the area ! 8) next, found a corner on top of the lockers to put my son's skating box which he brought, in an instant a guard told me you can't do that ! so had another placing issue to deal with. so far it was almost closing time and i hadn't go on the ice yet ! the planning and the layout of the building was completely stupid, there is a lookout on the second floor with a nice view , how do you get there? just take the steps, right! - wrong !!! you need to walk out all the way around and up a ramp about 10 min. 9) very fancy ceiling ok - nice why not ! nobody is paying for it anyway it was made free of charge or taxpaery's money whatever, at least install speakers that are clear !!! I couldn't understand a word of the announcements that where said over the speakers. reminds me of the manual subway announcements. is this just another Bloomberg blood thirsty way of a money machine ? and it took 5 years to built ! it will be a dump before you know it.
