The Lacey Township Police Department has partnered together with the Lacey Township Recreation Department and the Municipal Alliance, to open the Gille Park skate park, for Lacey Township residents, every other Friday evening. The events started in August 2016, and will continue through October 28th, 2016. The remaining dates include September 16th, and 30th, along with October 14th and 28th, 2016. During each event the skate park will be open from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 pm, with a live DJ playing music until 10:00 p.m.
