I have been watching the renovation of the Bernard J. Cooke Memorial Park at Burnt Tavern and Herborn ave in Brick since they started. The previous incarnation of this park always felt like a huge waste of compared to what it could be.

Recently (about two weeks ago) I witnessed what appeared to be the final work on the new skate park that is quite well engineered. While there is a fence around the park, there is no inner-fence around the skate park yet, and at least today, that outer fence didn’t stop anyone from enjoying some fun.
