The Skate Spot, located at 413 Fairground Avenue, is part of the larger Fairground Avenue Linear Park project. It will be open dawn to dusk until the solar lighting is completed in the spring. The entire park project has an estimated full completion date of June 30, 2023.
Design elements of the Skate Spot include a bowl basin 3'-6' deep, great for both beginner and advanced riders. The skate spot also features a hubba ledge, a flat bar/down rail, tier ledge, box ledge, and radius curb.
All concrete elements and safety features, including railings and handrails, that permit an early opening have been installed. Work that remains includes the installation of light poles and park benches, the hook-up of a water fountain, additional painting, and landscaping. With the majority of the construction complete, the Borough has entered into an agreement with the project’s contractor, LandServ, to allow the Skate Spot to open.
Construction on the recreational area of Fairground Avenue Linear Park is anticipated to be completed by the end of June 2023. This park area will feature an entry plaza, native plantings, benches, and solar lighting. Another feature will be an interactive play area with inclusive play elements and sensory play. The park will also include an interactive walking path with swing benches, glider benches, and hammocks.
Once construction is finalized for both areas, the Parks and Recreation Department will hold an official grand opening celebration for the community. The Fairground Avenue Linear Park will be the Borough’s 18th park.
