Welcome news for ice skaters in the North end of Central Park.

Lasker Rink will re-open tomorrow at 10:00 am after the Parks Department was able to repair the refrigeration system.

The announcement comes less than two weeks after the rink announced it would be closed for the remainder of the season.  

On November 15 the Rink issued a statement  that City engineers said the refrigeration plant must be replaced. 

"Lasker Rink will not be open during the 2014-2015 skating season," the message said.
