Playgrounds are Open !!

After receiving a $400,000 ADA grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the township completed work in October on playgrounds, a walking path, and other accessibility improvements at Eugenia Johnson Memorial Park and Frank LoBiondo Park.

Congressman Jeff Van Drew and Freeholder Douglas Albrecht attended an appreciation event thanking all those federal, state, county, local, professional, and community partners who made these improvements happen.

Deerfield has applied for another $400,000 ADA grant for improvements to Carmel Park and the Senior Center.

We intend to apply for additional grants in the years to come to make more improvements at all of our facilities.
