Jersey City Skate Park Opens; Jackson Food Pantry Benefit

Sources: Hudson Reporter;

Jersey City officials and Berry Lane Park announce the opening a nearly 12,000-square-foot skate park made possible with funding from the Tony Hawk Foundation and Hudson county.

The skatepark is the largest in Jersey City, and the first poured-in-place concrete skate park in Hudson County, completing the transformation of Berry Lane Park from a site that was once plagued with old rail lines and junkyards. The new facility will make up for the loss of a number of makeshift skate parks that local skateboarders had set up but were closed or relocated over the years.

“Since opening in 2016, Berry Lane Park has been a premier destination for recreation,” said mayor Steven Fulop. “We expect this skatepark to be an even bigger draw for our youth and families.”

Berry Lane Park can also boast of a playground, splash Park, exercise stations, basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball field, soccer field, and public space.
