BROOKLYN - North Brooklyn's first outdoor skating rink is now open to the public.

The brand new rink at McCarren Park is 7,200 square feet of natural ice sitting on top of what is a pool during summer months.

The rink stems from a $40 million renovation project that brought a new pool to the park last year.

Officials say the community wanted to see a rink as part of the project, and the group Open Space Alliance worked with the Parks Department to make it happen.
