Heating Up the Ice at the Stergiopoulos Ice Rink
The year 2005 introduced the longest skating season in 30 years to park district residents at the Andrew Stergiopolous Skating Rink. More than 400 skate school students skated through April 17 --- and members of the Great Neck Figure Skating Club were on the ice until May 1! Remarkable progress was seen during this, the longest skating season in Parkwood's history, due, in part, to longer class time and smaller class ratios. Parents benefited as well because the longer season encouraged skating at a fraction of the cost.
