The outdoor ice-skating rink at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn-North Hills is now open. The rink, part of the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums, is open seven days a week through around mid-March.
The Christopher Morley rink offers three two-hour day sessions six days a week (Monday - Thursday and Saturday - Sunday) beginning at 10:30 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 4 p.m., and two-hour sessions on Friday at 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
The County also runs a second outdoor ice-skating rink at Grant Park in Hewlett. For the Grant schedule and opening day (on or about December 4), call 516-571-7821.
At both parks, group and private skating lessons are available, as well as ice charters for groups, hockey games and private rentals. Patrons may also rent skates. Skating fees range from $4 to $14, depending upon the age of the patron and whether or not one is a Leisure Pass holder and county resident.
