NYC Parks announced that a Request for Expressions of Interest (“RFEI”) has been issued for the operation of an ice skating rink and/or for winter activities at McCarren Park Pool.

The park's "recently renovated pool area has the potential to serve as a true year-round destination and NYC Parks is seeking ideas for programming, amenities and events that will enhance the site during the winter months, while improving the quality of life for the surrounding community,”said said NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver.

Parks: Ideas for an ice skating rink may include varied layouts and sizes, be open or enclosed, include provisions for general skating, figure skating, ice hockey, skate rentals, and/or a pro shop. Ideas for additional concepts for the site include holiday markets, craft fairs, food fairs, concert/film/theater/dance series, restaurants/cafés/snack bars, public art installations, and/or Christmas tree sales.
