All Scotch Plains Playgrounds Now Open!

Master Plan Survey

Tennis Courts & Pickleball Courts Re-Opening 5/30!

Due to the announcement by Governor Murphy on April 29th lifting the order closing state and county parks, with restrictions, the Township of Scotch Plains will be re-opening access to our parks for passive recreation beginning on Saturday, May 2nd.  Playgrounds, bathrooms, courts, and picnic areas will remain closed at this time and any organized formal or informal play on our athletic fields is prohibited.  Further, following the Governor's directive, "social distancing will continue to be mandated" and facial coverings are strongly recommended when social distancing is difficult to maintain.


Please be advised that the lights at both Southside and Kramer Manor Park will be off until further notice.
