New Playgrounds Coming to Bobby’s Run Section of Town

Lumberton Township Begins Work To Completely Refurbish Recreation Parks in the Bobby’s Runs Section of Town

Lumberton, NJ – August 3, 2016 – Today, the Lumberton Township Committee launched Phase 1 of its project to refurbish the recreation parks located in the Bobby’s Run section of the Township. Phase 1 of this project will consist of replacing both playgrounds located at Bryan Freeman Park, as well as the playground at Turnbridge Drive.  In Phase 2, it is planned to completely refurbish the tennis courts and provide a facelift to the basketball court located at Bryan Freeman Park, which the Township Committee hopes to start construction on next month.  This overall project is a continuation of the Township Committee’s commitment to refurbishing the Public Parks and Playgrounds throughout Town, all of which have all been funded through grants provided by the Burlington County Municipal Park Development Program.

Mayor Sean Earlen stated, “Since 2011, Lumberton Township has received $878,710.00 dollars in grant money from the county and these dollars been used to build 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 the refurbishment of Turnbridge Park Playground.” “Additionally, due to the Township’s diligence and the work of our professionals, all of the previously mentioned projects came in under budget, which has allowed the Township to add the refurbishment of both playgrounds at the Bryan Freeman Park, to this year’s project,” added Mayor Earlen.

“Thanks in part to the Burlington County Freeholder Board we have been able to provide new and exciting recreational activities for our residents to enjoy,” added Committeeman Jim Conway, who serves as one of the Engineering Project liaisons to the Township Committee. “With the grant money we have saved from previous projects, we are now ahead of schedule in our long term plan to revitalize recreation activities throughout the Township and with the funds left over from engineering cost of these projects we will be able to provide much needed refurbishing of the Tennis Courts located at Bryan Freeman Park,” stated Committeeman Conway.

The Township expects that the Playgrounds at Bryan Freeman Park and Turnbridge Park will be completed by mid to late September of 2016 and hopes to begin construction on the Tennis Courts after the playground projects wrap up.
