Jersey City Breaks Ground on Berry Lane Park’s Latest Upgrades, Including Skate Park and Pavilion
Construction on Jersey City’s Largest Skate Park, funded in part by a Tony Hawk Foundation Grant, and New Park Pavilion Begins
What: Mayor Steven Fulop and the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) are beginning construction on the Berry Lane Skate Park, funded by the Tony Hawk Foundation, in addition to a new park pavilion. The new one-story masonry pavilion will include restrooms, changing rooms, utility rooms, a concession area and covered exterior terrace. At nearly 12,000 square feet, the skate park will be the largest in Jersey City and the first poured-in-place concrete skate park in Hudson County. Berry Lane Park, located in the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood, consists of 17 acres of property that was once a brownfield of former rail facilities, junk yards, and auto repair shops.
