Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Lou Imbroto announce that the Town’s outdoor ice skating rinks at Marjorie R. Post and Syosset-Woodbury Community Parks will officially open for the season on Friday, November 25th and remain open through Sunday, February 26th.
“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 Councilman Imbroto. “Our outdoor ice rink facilities are the perfect antidote to combating cabin fever during the winter months, and are the ideal way to help make coping with the cold fun and enjoyable!”
Public Skating Sessions are available at both outdoor rinks on Fridays from 4pm-6pm and 7pm-9pm, Saturdays from 1pm-3pm, 4pm-6pm, and 7pm-9pm, and Sundays from 1pm-3pm and 4pm-6pm. Adjusted hours take effect during Holiday Breaks, with information available on the Town’s website.
