NICE BUS STOP ADDED
A seasonal bus stop has been added to the Nassau Inter-County Express N-58 bus route at the west corner of Steppingstone Lane and Sunset Road, making it convenient for those who would like to visit Steppingstone Park (you need to show a park card to enter at the gate or be a guest of a resident with a valid park card) this summer.
The Great Neck Park District Commissioners, along with Nassau County Legislator Ellen Birnbaum, worked with NICE bus service to make this possible. Whether you take the bus, drive or walk, join us at beautiful Steppingstone Park where you can enjoy a picnic, a weekend concert, dinner cruise from the marina or a stroll to take in the awesome views of Long Island Sound. Children can swim in the kiddie pool, cool off under the sprinkles of the water pad and enjoy the playground. The bus will run through Labor Day on Monday, September 5.
