Recreation

In our ongoing effort to help deter the spread of Covid 19, Stafford Township has closed all community centers for the period of 30 days beginning March 13, 2020.

The Bay Avenue Community Center, Ocean Acres Community Center and the Jennings Road and Pine Street Recreation Centers will no longer host any of their regularly scheduled activities. Buildings will be professionally cleaned and sanitized. After 30 days have passed the situation will be re-evaluated and a determination will be made for any scheduled reopening.

We also remind residents that all athletic league activities have been suspended for the same 30 day period. Township athletic fields are closed to all leagues for games, practices and any other activities.

Should you have any questions regarding any Recreation Department activities you may contact any of our staff at 609-597-1000.

Please continue to follow this page for further updates and continue to obey the recommendations of local, state and federal agencies to help combat the spread of this virus.
