Skatepark Revitalization

Time, use, and the elements have taken their toll on the original equipment in the skatepark – part of the Recreation Center complex adjacent to the basketball and tennis courts.  Through funding made available from the NJ DEP Green Acres program, the skatepark will be undergoing a revitalization which includes replacing all of the metal ramps with concrete structures.  The design and build will be lead by Spohn Ranch Skateparks.  The links below will take you to draft designs, as well as some materials from Spohn Ranch outlining some of the benefits of skateparks.
