Skateboard Park Now Open

The Long Lake Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department announces the opening of a brand new skate park at the Geiger Arena.  Located inside the skating area, the new ramps and rails are designed for use by any non-motorized piece of equipment, including skateboards, roller blades, scooters, and bikes.  The new skate park will be open from dawn until 10:30pm and free to use. 

A more detailed list of rules and policies is posted at the entrance to the rink.    The Town would like to thank Trisha Hosley for spearheading this idea, doing the research and presenting it to the Town, and a thank you to  Town Supervisor Clay Arsenault and the Town Board for the support of the skate park. 

Equipment included in the set up are quarterpipes, safety rails, launch ramps, fun box and a grind kit. 

Pieces and parts can be added. 

Anyone using the park should be wearing protective gear, including helmets, wrist and knee protectors.

#518RAINBOWHUNT in Long Lake NY

If you’ve been to Long Lake in recent weeks you may have seen rainbows adorning many places in town.  

The 518 Rainbow Hunt has over 115,000 members in it’s Facebook Group.  The group, created in March 2020 shortly after the NYS Pause orders took effect and homeschoolers were stuck at home, scared, uncertain and afraid of what would come next, volunteers decided to shine a little light, hope and rainbows on an otherwise extremely unprecedented, scary, uncertain lock-down.

 

Families in the 518 area code and beyond placed handmade rainbows in their windows, doors and driveways. The goal is to create a rainbow scavenger hunt for kids who are cooped up inside for most of the day.

A local Long Lake resident and parent asked businesses and the Town of Long Lake if rainbows could be placed about to include Long Lake in this effort to bring smiles, positive vibes during the Coronavirus Lock down in New York State.

As the school year winds down, and parents start to close up their zoom aps and Microsoft Teams for the year, we just wanted to make sure everyone saw the cool rainbows that were placed around Long Lake.
