Pocopson Park Playground Closure

The playground apparatus (swings, climbing sets, etc.) at Pocopson Park is off limits until further notice. The purpose is to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus through contact with contaminated surfaces and to discourage the congregating of individuals wishing to use the apparatus.

Township parks (pathways, trails, etc.) are still open and people are encouraged to walk outside, jog, ride bikes, etc. Do not congregate and please maintain social distancing measures. Let’s all do our part to help flatten the curve. View flyer.

Barnard House property on Wawaset Road

Many of the windows at the Barnard House have been removed for glazing and painting. Repair/replacement of sills, sashes, jambs and trim is underway and should be completed by spring.

The barn on the property has been disassembled by the Public Works crew. Because some of the barn wood may be incorporated into the design of the new Township building, the Township has no plans yet to sell or otherwise dispose of the salvaged wood.
