The Skating Pavilion and Rink are accessible, including accessible restrooms inside the Skating Pavilion.

Both manual and motorized wheelchairs are permitted on the ice. Adaptive sleds are available free of charge.

Users who wish to enjoy the ice using our adaptive sled can be pushed by a member of their party or by one of The Rink’s Skate Hosts. To request Skate Host assistance ahead of time, you may call 917-438-5170, though it is not required.

There are accessible park entrances midblock on 40th and 42nd Streets, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. There is an accessible route that connects the 6th Avenue side of the park up to the Skating Pavilion.


Our observation deck, located on the second floor of the Skating Pavilion, is the perfect place to warm up and watch the skating below. While you sit, enjoy a selection of games, chess, and art supplies, all for free! No purchase is necessary to enter Overlook.

Overlook may be closed to the public on certain days for private events, so please click here to check hours before visiting. Scroll down to Private Entertaining if you are interested in renting Overlook for a holiday party or event.
