City Skatepark Closing January 6, 2020

Jacksonville Skatepark

In light of a recent NC Court of Appeals ruling that concerned the type of equipment at the Jacksonville Skatepark, it has been determined that it is in the best interest of the City to remove the equipment and close the facility effective January 6, 2020.

The structures in the park are metal and will be removed and stored until the City can find alternates to address the need for a skatepark.

The City is engaged in developing a master plan for City recreation areas. The public is encouraged to speak about their desire for recreation and park spaces during these public meetings:

  • January 14, 5PM, Jacksonville Commons Recreation Center
  • January 23, 4PM, Jack Amyette Recreation Center
