Lumberton Township Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for it’s Two Newest Playground at Bryan Freeman Park in the Bobby’s Runs Section of Town

Lumberton, NJ – October 31, 2016 – After two months of construction, the Lumberton Township Committee is set to open its newest playgrounds as part of its Phase 1 refurbishment of the recreational parks located in the Bobby’s Run section of the Township.  Phase 1 consisted of replacing both playgrounds located at Bryan Freeman Park, as well as the playground at Turnbridge Drive.  The Turnbridge Park officially opened last weekend.

In Phase 2 is also underway and will completely refurbishing the tennis courts located at Bryan Freeman Park This overall project is a continuation of the Township Committee’s commitment to refurbishing the Public Parks and Playgrounds throughout the Town, all of which have all been funded in part by grants from the Burlington County Municipal Park Development Program.

Mayor Sean Earlen stated, “the grand opening of these last two new state of the art playgrounds located at the Bryan Freeman Park rounds out the Township’s 2016 playground reconstruction plan and my colleagues and I are proud to have all three playgrounds now open for our residents to enjoy.” “We have been very fortunate over the years to receive well over $875,000 worth of grant money provided by the Burlington County’s Municipal Park Development Program. As you drive throughout the Township it is great seeing all of the completed projects being enjoyed by our residents and visitors to our great town,” added Mayor Earlen.

To date, Lumberton Township and the Burlington County Freeholders have teamed up to  construct a brand new playground, Community Garden and Dog Park at the Village Green, a  Canoe Launch  on the Rancocas Creek, sports fields at our Municipal Building Complex, and now the refurbishment of Turnbridge Park and Bryan Freeman Park’s Playgrounds.

“Partnering with the Burlington County Freeholder Board has been a no brainer decision for the Township Committee,” added Committeeman Jim Conway, who serves as one of the Engineering Project liaisons to the Township Committee.  “This year in particular has been extremely good for Lumberton Township as participants in the county’s Park Development Grant Program due to the fact that several of our past projects provided by these grant funds finished well under budget and we were permitted to use all of our leftover grant money to refurbish three playgrounds in the Bobby’s Run Section of the Township,” stated Committeeman Conway.

Bryan Freeman Park will be open from dawn to dusk, seven days a week to be enjoyed by Township Residents.

Lumberton Township Marks the Grand Opening of it’s Newest Playground off of Turnbridge Drive in the Bobby’s Runs Section of Town

Lumberton, NJ – October 15, 2016 – After two months of construction, the Lumberton Township Committee is set to open the first of three playgrounds as part of its Phase 1 refurbishment of the recreational parks located in the Bobby’s Run section of the Township.  Phase 1 consists of replacing both playgrounds located at Bryan Freeman Park, as well as the playground at Turnbridge Drive.  In Phase 2, the Township is completely refurbishing the tennis courts located at Bryan Freeman Park, and expects construction on that project will wrap up by the end of October/beginning of November.  This overall project is a continuation of the Township Committee’s commitment to refurbishing the Public Parks and Playgrounds throughout the Town, all of which have all been funded in part by grants from the Burlington County Municipal Park Development Program.

Mayor Sean Earlen stated, “today we mark the grand opening of this new state of the art playground, which is one of three that the Township will be opening this month.” “We have been very fortunate to receive $878,710.00 dollars in grant money from the county and these dollars have been put to good use by building a brand new playground, Community Garden and Dog Park at the Village Green, along with a Canoe Launch located across the street from Village Green on the Rancocas Creek, sports fields at our Municipal Building Complex, and culminating with the refurbishment of Turnbridge Park Playgrounds,” added Mayor Earlen.

“One of the greatest aspect of this project in my mind is it serves a staple for community activisms, earlier this year residents came together through the petition process to request the refurbishment of this park. During a Township Committee meeting this past February, several residents in the neighborhood surrounding the Turnbridge Drive Playground, submitted their collective request for the Township to update this park and fortunately enough it was on our radar to be refurbish through the Burlington County Grant program,” stated Mayor Earlen.

“With the help of the Burlington County Freeholder Board, the Township Committee has been able to completely transform the recreational features our Township has to offer our residents and visitors,” added Committeeman Jim Conway, who serves as one of the Engineering Project liaisons to the Township Committee.  “However by far, the best aspect of this grant program is the Township being able to use any remaining funds from previous projects to refurbish both playgrounds at the Bryan Freeman Park, which is a great reward for keeping all of our county sponsored projects well under budget and we expect to open those playgrounds next week,” stated Committeeman Conway.

Turnbridge Park will be open from dawn to dusk, seven days a week to be enjoyed by Township Residents.  The Township expects to open both playgrounds at Bryan Freeman Park starting on Monday October 17, 2016 and hopes to open the new Tennis Courts at Bryan Freeman Park by the end of October/beginning of November.
