i dont think that bikers caused $2oo worth of damage to lacey skate park because all bikes to the same to all parks and incline club in lake wood as been open for years and they redid there entire park when they fixed it and im sure thats costed alot but its bull shit that bikers can not ride lacey skate park. all the bikers did to lacey was they made some skid marks on the ramps. thats not a big deal

honestly i dont see how it is such a big deal if bikes went in the skateparks. it is such bull shit that us lacey residents who are not inerested in skating or blading, but biking how we cant even have a good time riding our local skate park. i really dont understand why bikes wouldnt be allowed in there. how much damage can a bike really do? skid marks or a little scratch on the coping? lacey town ship is a shit hole for bikers. an it makes it worse tht we cant even have a day or two out of the week to let bikes in. i would do ANYTHING to convience you to let bikes in the skate park once in a while.

Forget the skate park. Go home and study until you are able to write in clear and correct English.

I don't think Lacey should even have (or deserves) a skatepark at all!!! I'm sorry to say, as much as i love skateboarding, and i certainly don't begrudge the local kids. but what i do unapologetically RESENT is how the township INSISTS on making the park residents only. They may think they're keeping trouble out; they're not. it's only creating more and more animosity and resentment from outsiders who currently have less and less options regarding skateparks in the local Ocean county area
1- manahwakin was closed back in 07
2- barnegat is closed indefinitely due to dilapidated ramps and ROUGH ground
3- beachwood/ berkeley twp is closed for repairs and even still doesn't look that good (very small)
4- West Creek and Brick are at least a good 15 miles away in either direction.
Lacey twp is only provoking outsiders to anger , and if they had any common sense at all, they know people will NOT willingly adhere to such a policy, and even some resident skaters don't agree with it,(to their credit). There are less and less skate parks around than 5 years ago, so they're devilishly dangling carrots in front of our rabbit faces.(Lacey would otherwise be an oasis for outside local skaters as it is the biggest and nicest of ALL the skateparks in a 15 mile radius) only to block us out and rub it in that lacey "has" and we "have not". It would behoove Lacey officials to CEASE these HEAD GAMES!!Bottom line: if they don't open it to all, CLOSE THE STUPID THING ALTOGETHER!!!!!

The fact that this park is closed 3/4 of the year and is open for a grand total of 3 hrs a day monday through friday is absolutely ridiculous. Its a sitting waste bucket. Why spend the money for it if it doesnt even get its use. This state already has very poor skateparks, what this state needs is more INDOOR skateparks. And let professionals design them not the township with these crummy pre made ramps.
