Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board remind residents that the Town’s outdoor ice skating rinks at Marjorie R. Post and Syosset-Woodbury Community Parks will officially open for the season the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 29th.
“Ice skating is a fun activity for residents of all ages to enjoy, and the Town’s outdoor ice rinks provide the perfect setting to relax, unwind, and take in the wonderful winter atmosphere,” said Supervisor Saladino. “Our outdoor ice rink facilities are the perfect antidote to combating cabin fever during the winter months, and are a wonderful way to help make coping with the cold fun and enjoyable! I encourage residents of all ages to take advantage of these facilities.”
Public sessions at both outdoor rinks on opening day will run as follows: 10AM-12PM, 1PM-3PM, 4PM-6PM and 7PM-9PM. In addition to public sessions, private and semi-private lessons, group lessons and private rentals are also available at the rinks. Also, for those who wish to take advantage of ice skating but do not wish to be outdoors, the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center is open year-round and is located at 1001 Stewart Ave. in Bethpage.
