Union County Invites Residents to Participate in Nomahegan Park Clean-up Event, July 13th

The Union County Board of County Commissioners has partnered with the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Township of Cranford to organize a special clean-up event focused on preserving the vegetation at Nomahegan Park, located at 955 Springfield Avenue in Cranford. Cranford residents and friends are welcome to participate at this event on Saturday, July 13th, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

“It is through the tireless efforts of our residents, local volunteers, and partners that we are able to successfully uphold the cleanliness, safety, and beauty of our County parks, including our treasured Nomahegan Park,” said Union County Commissioner Chairwoman, Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “We are grateful for the community’s support in preserving the cleanliness of our environment for the enjoyment of not only our children, but future generations. I hope to see you there.”

Participants are asked to meet at the gazebo near the park’s entrance and are welcome to join the clean-up at or after 9:00 a.m. Organizers will provide attendees with free gloves, water, and garbage bags. An ice cream truck will be stationed at the event to reward the volunteers.

The Nomahegan Park clean-up event was organized by a dedicated student from Cranford High School, Caroline Cleaveland, in partnership with the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Township of Cranford. The event aims to preserve vegetation and educate residents and children on how to protect and conserve nature.
