jccnotebook2James City County has adopted new hours and a new pass requirement for its Skate Park, and a Clean Business Forum has been planned for July 19. Read on for more information.

Passes Now Required at Skate Park

James City County has made several changes to the operation of its Skate Park, going into effect on July 5.

Starting Tuesday, the park will be subject to seasonal operating hours. From July 5-Sept. 5, the park will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday and from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday.

All participants must obtain a pass to use the Skate Park. The passes are free for county and city residents, but a replacement pass costs $10. Non-residents can either purchase a day pass for $5 or a seasonal pass for $35. The Skate Park is adjacent to the James City/Williamsburg Community Center on Longhill Road. Passes can be purchased at the center starting July 5.

    Going to our Rec Center often, for years, I cannot help but notice the ever-present lack of civility around the nearby parking lot! One common practice is for ones on bicycles to cut across the ballfields and through our main parkig lot to the park, screaming and cussing at us if we don’ve move fast enough! Groups, often, like to hang out on and around their cars at that end of the lot, loudly, and with that “language!” WHERE, for years, James City County, has been ANY adult supervision on a constant basis for our park? NONE! WHY NOT? Our park has been an “open haven”, for years, for uncivil behavior…REALLY! CLOSE IT, instead!!
