The seasons they are a changin’, and so too are the weekend leisure activities in Brooklyn. This is Smorgasburg’s last weekend on the Williamsburg waterfront before it decamps for the winter to Industry City, because no one wants to eat delicious food in the cold for several months. But you might want to ice skate all winter long, and it just got way cheaper to do so at LeFrak Center at Lakeside Prospect Park.
The Rink, which got a $74 million rebirth two years ago, now offers individual season passes for $100, compared to $120 last year, according to Brokelyn. Likewise, family passes have gone down to $325, and couples passes to $175—saving you $75 and $41 respectively. Not bad. Passes are good through March, 2016, and also get you additional discounts at the Center’s Bluestone Café, on birthday packages, half-off ice skate sharpening, and unlimited skate rental.
Ice skating might seem like an under-loved winter pastime, but we think it’s the leisure activity equivalent to being able to drive stick shift; it’s not something you have to do, but if you can, everyone is really impressed.
