NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- City officials and the Central Park Conservancy are announcing a $150 million makeover of the park's Lasker Pool and skating rink.

The rink is run by the Trump Organization, but its concession expires in 2021. The city runs the pool on its own and officials plan to spruce up the run-down 50-year-old facility.

Conservancy president Elizabeth Smith said the renovation, "will be a marvelous addition to communities around the northern end of the park."
