Our recreation department maintains all of our park and recreation sites throughout the town. Our office is located on Lake Ave., at the Skimmer complex, where youth baseball, softball and street hockey are played. Located behind the municipal building, Green Acres I offers newly refurbished tennis courts, pavilions available for picnic rentals, and walking trails. Green Acres II, next to the municipal building, is home to our youth football field, soccer fields, and bandstand where our annual Christmas tree lighting is held. Green Acres IV, our largest park, houses our Babe Ruth baseball field, roller hockey court, and soccer game fields. There are also numerous athletic fields, basketball courts, and tennis courts located throughout our community, as well as our Sylvan Lake swimming facility. Our programs are run by a mayor-appointed recreation commission. The commission is responsible for the organization, administration, and operation of our recreational activities. Our normal office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM. A registration drop box has also been added for your convenience.
2023 pavilion rentals will begin on Monday, March 6, 2023. Before completing the pavilion application, please contact the Recreation Dept. at (609) 387-2775 to inquire about the particular date/pavilion site requesting.
