Wollman Rink offers fun for all seasons, providing 26,600 square feet of ice for skating in the winter and pedal boats on the lake in the summer. Although not a part of the original plan for Prospect Park, the Rink, built in 1960, has added a dose of winter fun for thousands of skaters, in addition to serving as home ice for local amateur men's and women's hockey teams.
This wood-shingled Dutch Colonial farmhouse, built about 1652, is the oldest home in New York City. It stands on land that is believed to have been purchased in 1636 from the Canarsie Indians by Van Twiller, the first director general of New Netherland. With Dutch ceramic tiles and a period garden, visitors can tour the household of the Dutch settlers in the New World.
