Construction of the Livingston Skate Park is nearly complete. The Skate Park Committee is planning the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 10th at 6 p.m. There will be a skating demonstration and a chance to be the first "official" skater on the park.

All those wishing to skate on opening night must be registered prior to the opening of the park. Registration needs to be done in person between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays at the Senior/Community Center located at 204 Hillside Avenue in the Senior, Youth and Leisure Services (SYLS) Department. Registration forms will also be available at the Haines Memorial Pool Open House near the High School on Saturday, June 5th from 2-5pm. There will also be registration along with a sneak peek of the completed park from 4-7pm on Tuesday, June 8th and Wednesday, June 9th at the skate park located between the new Municipal Complex and the West Essex YMCA. Registration will also take place at the grand opening.

Participants under the age of 18 must register with a parent present to sign a liability waiver. Each registrant will be issued a permit in the form of a decal which must be affixed to the rider's helmet for use of the park. This rule will be strictly enforced. There is no registration fee. Use of the park is for Livingston residents only. Any questions about obtaining the decal should be directed to the SYLS department 973-535-7925.
