Winter Village + Ice Skating at Governors Island Returns!

Winter Village + Ice Skating at Governors will be back this 2022 – 23 Season

November 17 through February 2023

Colonels Row on Governors Island

Accessible through the NYC Ferry

Round-trip fer­ry tick­ets cost $4 for adults. Gov­er­nors Island fer­ries are always free for chil­dren 12 and under, seniors 65 and up, res­i­dents of NYCHA, IDNYC hold­ers, cur­rent and for­mer mil­i­tary ser­vice mem­bers, and Gov­er­nors Island mem­bers. 

Yep! It’s True! The 7,500 Square foot skating rink at Governors Island is returning this Autumn and Winter Season for all to enjoy! In addition, there’ll be winter activities, decorations, warming fire pits, bike and sled rentals, cultural programming and much more!

And remember folks! The island is open every single day.

“We are so excit­ed to invite New York­ers and vis­i­tors to Gov­er­nors Island for the return of Win­ter Vil­lage,” said New York City May­or Eric Adams. ​“Cold weath­er doesn’t have to mean being stuck inside — it can mean ice skat­ing and sled­ding with your friends or sit­ting around a fire with your fam­i­ly. And with the return of Win­ter Dog Days, I’m sure Gov­er­nors Island will be a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for every mem­ber of the family.”

“Gov­er­nors Island con­tin­ues to show­case its unique and uplift­ing con­tri­bu­tions to New York City’s cul­tur­al land­scape through the Win­ter Vil­lage,” said Deputy May­or for Eco­nom­ic and Work­force Devel­op­ment Maria Tor­res-Springer. ​“From ice skat­ing to Jen­ga to toasty drinks, there’s some­thing for every­one in the fam­i­ly at the Win­ter Vil­lage and I encour­age all New York­ers to take advan­tage of Gov­er­nors Island year-round.”

New Yorkled’s been to the island plenty of times in the past years and our favorite time has always been during Summer months when we were able to stay past sunset. We’ve yet to visit in the Winter months but this announcement is music to our ears! Can’t wait to head on over to see what all the fuss is about. Will you be joining along? Hope so! 😊
