BAY HEAD — Bay Head officials have identified and recognized all the parks within the borough, and established guidelines for parks, as well.
At Monday’s council meeting, the mayor and council introduced the ordinance identifying all the open space the borough owns, along with updating and adding a slew of new rules and regulations to be followed in the parks.
The “Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries” section in the Bay Head borough codebook only identifies Kellogg Memorial Island, Evergreen Park and Scow Ditch Park.
Kellogg Memorial Island is a wildlife sanctuary and is described as an “island within Twilight Lake in the Borough of Bay Head which is part of Lot No. 1 in Block No. 21, as shown on the Bay Head Tax Map,” according to the borough’s codebook and the updated ordinance.
Evergreen Park is the site of the old municipal sewer plant and is designated as Lot No. 13 in Block No. 52. Scow Ditch Park is designated as Lot No. 6 in Block No. 52 and sits at the site of the former borough hall.
The updated ordinance renames Scow Ditch Park to Blue Star Memorial Park and adds Centennial Park, Twilight Park and Howe Park.
