Township Committee Shares Recreational Improvement Plan

Holmdel Township Seal

Over the last year the Township Committee has collaborated with community user groups, resident organizations and the Board of Education to design a recreational improvement plan that will modernize our fields and facilities in a fashion that is equitable to both our athletes and tax payers.

The Township Committee has authorized up to $2.5 million in spending for the project, which will be allocated for enhancements to fields and grounds at Holmdel High School, as well as Phillips Park, Cross Farm Park, Village Elementary School, the Senior/Community Center, the Duncan Smith Theater, Veterans Park, and the old Holmdel Tennis Center.

The scope of the work includes new lighting for the High School’s softball fields, and the installation of entirely artificial turf facilities at both the upper and lower fields located at Phillips Park.
Extensive work is planned for Cross Farm Park, including general improvements to baseball and softball fields, the installation of batting cages, the development of a new T-Ball field, and establishing permanent shade canopies near the softball fields. The rehabilitation of soccer fields 1 and 4 is also in the works.

Improvements and rehabilitation of the grass lacrosse fields at Village School, the rehabilitation of land at the Old Tennis Center are also planned.
The Township Committee would like to thank HYAA, American Youth Football, Holmdel Football Association, the Board of Education, Save Holmdel Village, and Citizens for Informed Land Use for their participation in this process.
