NYSB’s long-time friend & contributor Joe Ondrek has been keeping tabs on the new Bethpage/Oyster Bay skate park and received final confirmation that the park is opening this weekend! Read what he sent over below:

Just got official word from my contact in the town Parks office that the doors will be open to public this Saturday, May 5th for the “soft opening”. Starting Saturday, the park will be open from 10 AM to sunset every day, weather dependent of course… Helmet only required. Other pads “strongly recommended”.

Park is “Officially open to the Town of Oyster Bay Residents ONLY”, but they are not checking ID’s and will be using the “honor system”, so play nice and anyone can come skate. NO fee. Free Free Free!!!

They are planning for an official Grand Opening event to happen sometime in future but didn’t have that setup just yet.

Oh and for anyone wondering what happened to the 110 indoor skate park our sources say that the owners had financial difficulty and the partially constructed park will not happen. We hope that bowl doesn’t go to waste, anyone remember Union skate park?
