For shoppers looking for both convenience and the perfect gift for the golfers and skaters in their lives, the Morris County Park Commission is introducing Gift Cards.

According to Dave Helmer, executive director of the Park Commission, the gift cards can be conveniently used year-round at either Mennen Sports Arena or at any of the Park Commission’s four golf courses.

“We are responding to the many requests from skaters and golfers alike, as well as their family and friends, who want the convenience of a gift card,” Helmer
said. “Now, a grandparent can give the gift of skate lessons, or a friend or colleague can give a round of golf or a gift from the Pro Shop. This makes gift giving easy.”

Helmer said the gift cards in various amounts can be purchased online at, at the Mennen Sports Arena in Morris Township and at the golf shops during the season.

Each gift card is designed for either Mennen Sports Arena or the golf courses at Berkshire Valley, Pinch Brook, Flanders Valley and Sunset Valley.

With just a swipe, users can purchase food at the snack bar at Mennen, sign up for lessons or rent a pair of skates, and enjoy a public skate session, Helmer said. At the golf courses, golfers can play a round of golf, enjoy the driving range, take a private lesson, and make a purchase at the golf shop.

“It’s all about convenience from the purchasing of the gift card to its use,” adds Helmer.
