|The High Bridge Swimming Pool during the Summer|
According to reports from a variety of sources the City is set to spend $1.1 Million to have a skating rink in Highbridge Park so that it can be used more for wintertime activities. Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez reportedly said that the park will become a true upper Manhattan destination.
"The skating area will be built on the kiddie pool in Highbridge Park, much as Lasker Rink near E. 106th St. takes the place of Lasker Pool during the winter months." according to the New York Daily News. They also report that Councilman Rodriguez said, "It will attract businesses, tourists and educational programming to Highbridge Park, a beautiful place soon to become a destination in Northern Manhattan."
