Collins Park Skate Park
200 W 1st Street, Bayonne, NJ 07002
From the recent loss of indoor The Bridge skatepark, the skateboard community was literally left out in the cold. With nowhere left to express passions in a welcoming environment, the youth of Bayonne, NJ had been forced to the streets until another home was presented.
Attempting to fill the void, skateboarding advocate and local skateshop owner of Classic Skateshop, Gary Iannitelli approached Mayor Jimmy Davis in 2014 with 15 kids by his side and said, ‘We need a skate park.’ Two years later, with the help of the City of Bayonne and the fine work of our Spohn Ranch build crew, the future of skateboardings tomorrow has secured a place for the kids to skate today.
Located at the south end where JFK blvd ends in Bayonne, NJ with a beautiful parallel view of Bayonne Bridge, is the new Collins Park Skatepark, complete built most items you’d want in a street plaza. Such as hubbas, grind rails, ledges, manual pad, plus other added amenities such as a miniramp and A-Frame.
-7,000 square feet of concrete with lights and a fence
-The mini-ramp is a crowd pleaser. All through the summer months, you will find skaters tearing up that mini ramp at all hours throughout the day.
-Sitting opposite the mini-ramp there is a nice large quarter pipe that feeds directly into a satisfying street plaza area.
-In this street plaza area, you will find a funbox, a flat rail, a handrail, a hubba, and a few ledges. There is also a four-stair where some skaters love to practice their hard flips, heel flips, and various other tricks as they clear the steps.
-Adjacent to this street plaza section is a second elongated street plaza with one extra-long ledge that stretches almost the entire length of the plaza.
-Additionally, in the same street plaza section, there is a kicker gap, a manual pad, a few other smaller ledges, and a quarter pipe/roll-in combo on the far end.
