The renovations included installing a new, fully accessible play structure for ages 5-12 and installing the Townships first poured-in-place rubber safety surfacing. Additionally, a sidewalk was installed providing direct access from the handicapped parking spots to the playground area. “These improvements render that area of the playground accessible to all user groups. A goal the township has been pursuing for a number of years and one we hope to expand to the other parks in our community”, said Deputy Mayor and Parks Committee liaison Brendon Beatrice.

Township Committee member David Owens added, “Moving forward the Township has plans to renovate the swing set area in the Old Towne Park with new swings, including a handicapped swing and the new rubber surfacing. Once this is completed, the Old Towne Park playground will be the first in town to be truly 100% accessible.”

The township continues to invest in our parks and recreation infrastructure and more improvements are being considered including; bocce courts, new playground equipment to replace aging units and additional walking trails and paths.
