A Brief History:  The Wollman  Rink is located in the Southern part of Central park.  It was built in 1949 with funds donated by Kate Wollman.  The ice skating rink is open to the public from October to April.  During the spring and summer there were many venues hosted on the rink platform such as many different types music festivals.  In 1980 the rink was no longer used for music festivals.  At this present time when not in use for ice skating the rink is used for the Victorian Gardens Amusement Park.  Today the rink is operated by the Trump Organization and Rink Management Services.  The rink is known today as the Trump Wollman Rink.

Haunted History:  It is said that if you are walking passed the rink at night sometimes you will see two young girls skating figure 8s on the rink and just suddenly disappear.  There have been many reports of people seeing this activity.
