Residents of Great Neck can enjoy outdoor activities all year long with a variety of activities hosted by the Great Neck Park District. Enjoy ice skating and hockey in the winter at the local ice rink, as well as sailing, swimming, and nature hikes in the warmer months for some fun in the sun. Children are able to attend the Camp Parkwood, which also provides activities for tots and infants with parent interaction. With so much to do, and a special event held each month, the park district is the entertainment hub of the community.
Gold Coast Internatio
Each year the Great Neck Arts Center hosts its annual Gold Coast International Film Festival. Highlights of the festival include movie screenings of upcoming films, previews for other not-yet-released movies, and the ability for festival goers to take part in a Q and A with stars of some of the movies showcased during the festival. Actors, writers, directors, and producers all take part in this event to gauge how the festival goers react to their work. It is a great experience for all involved and a fantastic way to be part of the movie making process.
Great Neck Shopping P
If you are tired of the same old boring shopping malls, Great Neck has a fantastic shopping experience for you. The Great Neck Plaza is home to over 250 different shops and places to dine. Locals can visit an art gallery, purchase chocolates at Kron Chocolatiers, or try a unique outfit at Designs by Shoula. Once you are done shopping for clothes, toys, and candy, you head over to Waldbaum's to do your grocery shopping for the week. Great Neck Shopping Plaza is really a one-stop shopping spot that helps make shopping more fun and less of a chore.
