BRICK TOWNSHIP — The township unveiled new environmental and educational signage at Bayside Park last week, garnishing a site that had just won the New Jersey Recreation and Parks Association’s Excellence in Design Award earlier this month.

Mayor John G. Ducey and township officials were joined by Karen Walzer of the Barnegat Bay Partnership and Jennifer M. Coffey of the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions [ANJEC] when presenting the signs on Thursday, May 20. The signs were a collaboration between the Brick Township Environmental Commission, the partnership and ANJEC, which also bestowed the grant that funded the project.

“Bayside Park recently became the tenth recreation site here in Brick Township that’s been renovated,” Mayor Ducey said.

“Right here, residents can enjoy fishing and crabbing. We try to do something different at every single park,” the mayor continued. “We have cornhole here, we have a dog park on Drum Point Road, we have a skate park off of Burnt Tavern Road … there’s something different at every one of our parks, to make it special to go to.”
