A Reminder about Pools
We understand that as summer approaches and households are looking for ways to enjoy the summer and provide recreational opportunities during the current public health emergency and “stay at home” order they may be considering the installation of a pool; however please note that all state and local zoning and construction regulations still apply. read more
Please Practice Social Distancing as You Walk in the Park
Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 118 stating all state and county parks have to close. Wantage Township will continue to allow Woodbourne Park to stay open as long as social distance rules are followed. Please remind your family that if groups of people are seen together at the park, we will have to close Woodbourne. Maintain 6 feet apart from all walkers — for your safety and theirs. Thank you.
