James Monroe Memorial Park

Dey Grove-Bergen Mills Road, Monroe Township, Middlesex County, New Jersey

16 acres


History:

1982 the park was built using Green Acres funding. It is maintained by Monroe Township's Department of Public Works. The park is the largest municipal park in the township.

2002 Monroe Township received a $275,000 low-interest loan from the state to make improvements to the park. The park will be expanded because a developer donated a 35-acre stretch of land near the park. The parking lot will be enlarged and a fourth baseball field added. In addition, more walking paths will be added.


Facilities:

recreational fields; "tot lot"
