Some avid skaters, however, couldn't wait until opening day to test out the new in-ground concrete bowls. The skate park at 101 Kerfoot Ave. will officially open to the public at 8 a.m. It will be open from dawn to dusk, said Daniel P. Lenz, Warren County's parks and recreation director.

The skate park has features and obstacles that are considered dangerous for skaters without advanced skills. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult, officials said.
