Special Teen Friday Night Recreation
Andrew Stergiopoulos Ice Rink is the “coolest” place in town for teens, every Friday from 8 to 10 p.m., beginning Friday, September 19. Along with skating, there will be special music, club-like lighting, fun activities (on and off the ice), giveaways, tasty food at the snack bar and adult supervision.

2014 Commuter Parking Tickets
In order to park in any of the Park District’s commuter parking lots, you must have a window decal on your vehicle at all times. As a courtesy to residents, the Park District issues one parking window decal per resident household at no cost. If needed, a second decal may be purchased for $12. In order to obtain a parking decal, a resident must have a valid park card and present his/her vehicle’s DMV registration, showing his/her name and Park District address.
In order to park during commuter hours (Monday through Friday, 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.) you will need to purchase, in addition to your decal, a daily, monthly or annual parking ticket. All decals and tickets can be obtained at Great Neck House. For your convenience, daily tickets are also available for purchase at Cuttermill Mailroom, 15 Cuttermill Road, in addition to Great Neck House and Dunkin’ Donuts (across from the train station). Call 482-0355 for more information.
