Oyster Bay's ice rinks will offer extended sessions during the holiday season, beginning Dec. 24 and running through Jan. 1.
“Skaters in the town have the option of skating in the great outdoors at Marjorie R. Post Community Park rink in Massapequa and at Syosset-Woodbury Community Park rink, or indoors at the state-of-the art Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center located in Bethpage Community Park,” said Councilman Anthony Macagnone said.
The town's ice skating holiday schedule will begin with public sessions on Christmas Eve from 10 a.m. to noon and extend through New Year’s Eve. Sessions are held in two hour increments with many beginning 10:00 a.m. and ending as late as 10:00 p.m.
