ALL PARKS, PLAYGROUNDS & the SKATE PARK are now closed

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s Emergency Declaration of March 16, 2020 placed a limit of 50 people for all social functions and “gatherings” due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The purpose of the Governor’s action is to limit one to one contact in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus.

This Declaration follows the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Consistent with the Governor’s Declaration, all recreational facilities including parks and playgrounds as well as the skate park are   now closed and shall closed until the Governor lifts the Emergency Declaration.
