Bryant Park


Bank of America Winter Village Opens October 30

As summer comes to a close, prepare for another great season of free-admission ice skating and holiday shopping in the park.

Colin Miller

As the late summer weather continues to sizzle it may be difficult to believe, but the opening of Bank of America Winter Village is just nine weeks away. The Rink, Holiday Shops, and Celsius, a winter-themed bar-restaurant, will all return as Bryant Park opens its 11th season of free-admission ice skating. 

The last day to enjoy the lawn, weather permitting, is Sunday, October 11. After the lawn is removed, installation of the ice rink begins on Thursday, October 15. The Rink opens to the public at 3:30pm on Friday, October 30, the same day as Celsius and the Holiday Shops. The Rink and Celsius close their doors on Sunday, March 6 but the last day for the Holiday Shops is a bit earlier, on Sunday, January 3, 2016.

There are still plenty of warm-weather amenities and programs at the park, of course. Check out our online calendar so you don’t miss out on all the free classes, literary events, musical performances, and more on offer at Manhattan’s Town Square.
