LACEY – The local police and recreation departments have teamed up to bring back skate nights to Gille Park every other Friday night in spring and summer.

The first one is scheduled for April 12. Other evenings will be held on the following Fridays: May 5, May 19, June 2, and June 30.

Other dates might be announced as the season progresses. A series of fall nights are also likely. The nights run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., with a DJ starting at 7 p.m.

Lighting will be provided by the police department, with help from the Forked River and Lanoka Harbor fire departments. The Lacey Township EMS and Lanoka Harbor EMS will be on scene.

The skate park is designed only for skateboards, scooters, and in-line skates. Bicycles are not permitted. All users are required to wear a helmet in the park at all times, and follow all of the posted rules. Bottled water is permitted in the park.

This program had run in the fall of 2016 as well.
