Town Announces Public Skating Sessions for Winter Recess

Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson today announced that residents looking for fun activities to fill their week of winter recess need look no further than the Town’s Ice Skating Rinks – outdoors at Marjorie Post and Syosset-Woodbury Parks and indoors at the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center in Bethpage. Beginning Sunday, February 16th, and lasting through Friday, February 21st, the Town’s three rinks will be offering special public session schedules throughout Presidents’ week, providing kids who are off school a fun-filled wintertime activity.


“During Presidents’ week when most schools are closed, the Town’s ice rinks will be open and offering a special modified schedule with public sessions to accommodate families who are looking to enjoy ice time with their children,” said Councilwoman Johnson. “I encourage anyone who enjoys ice skating and is off from school or work during Presidents’ week to take advantage of these special public sessions, and enjoy a staycation right in their own backyards!”


The outdoor ice rinks are located at Marjorie Post Park, Unqua and Merrick Roads in Massapequa, and at Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, 7900 Jericho Tpke in Woodbury. The Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center is located within Bethpage Community Park at 1001 Stewart Avenue, in Bethpage. Modified public session for ice skating will begin on Sunday, February 16th and run through Friday, February, 21st with the following schedule:


  • Sunday, February 16th– 1-3pm, 4-6pm, and 7-9pm


  • Monday, February 17th through Friday, February 21st– 10a-12p, 1-3p, 4-6p, 7-9p


In addition to all public skating sessions, skating programs and private lessons are also available at the Town’s Indoor Ice Skating Center.
