The West Orange Recreation Department continues to discuss COVID-19 information with Township and Board of Education officials while monitoring updates from local, state and federal officials. As we process this information, we are developing contingency plans for different scenarios. Our top priority is the health and safety of our participants and staff.
All kiddie parks, playgrounds, basketball courts and the skate park have been closed and will be noted/locked where applicable. We are not closing parks entirely to allow residents the opportunity to take walks in parks. However, we are strongly recommending the CDC suggestions of ‘social distancing’ so please keep distance from other residents if you decide to walk in parks.
