    The address of the Center is 1001 Stewart Avenue. Bethpage, NY.

    This indoor ice skating center is located at Bethpage Community Park, Stewart and Cherry Avenues, Bethpage. Parking in the rear.

    You can’t miss it as it is a very large brick building just across the street from Bethpage H.S, and down the road from Briarcliffe College (on the same side of the street and all lit up).

    By the Stewart and Cherry Avenues traffic light, enter the Ice Skating Center parking lot through the road on your left (the other road-Aerospace Blvd-leads into Northrop/Grumman) and park in the large rear lot. Enter the Center by the main doors and walk straight down the hallway about 200 feet. Community room #1 will the first one you come to on your right (the skating rink will be visible on your left).
