Wantage Parks Are Open
Maintain 6 feet apart from others — for your safety and theirs.
All organized sports and group activities are not to be held until further notice.
The Recreation Committee reminds everyone who uses our parks:
- Use caution and watch your speed entering and exiting the park. (Be alert for children and walkers.)
- Remember that our parks are "carry in, carry out".
- Remember cigarette butts are litter too. (A few smoker receptacle/outdoor ashtrays are available in some areas.)
- Porta johns are not trash disposals. (Wantage Township has a very bad reputation with garbage in the porta johns, as told to us by two companies.)
- Teams: please announce these rules to the visiting teams before the start of the game.
- Coaches need to make a final sweep of the area after games.
Every year we received complaints from citizens. We have a wonderful volunteer at Woodbourne Park who cleans up every night. Let's not make his job harder! Please pass on this information to every coach and parent and keep our parks clean. Thank you!
For information about our parks, please refer to the Parks page.
