Madison Street Park Will Temporarily Close for Repairs

Hoboken’s Castle Point Skate Park, located on Sinatra Drive, is in the process of being renovated. More than half of the equipment is in need of resurfacing and several damaged subsurface areas are being repaired or replaced. All steel grind edges, copings and thresholds will be securely bolted or welded to the ramp framing. Repairs are in progress and expected to last at least through next week, weather permitting. Sections of the park will remain open during repairs.

In addition, minor repairs are needed to the play surface in Madison Street Park. The park will be closed for renovations on Friday, September 14 and Saturday, September 15.

“The year of the parks continues with the renovation of our waterfront skate park,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “We’ve renovated playgrounds at Jackson Street Park, Madison Street Park and Legion Park and made a down payment to buy land for a Southwest Park. Construction is almost complete at Mama Johnson Field, and will soon begin at Church Square Park, Sinatra Park, and 1600 Park.” ◦
