A local group of volunteers spent several hours on Sunday, July 23 at Milton Lake Park in Rahway removing recently sprayed graffiti on a stone wall along the lake.
The effort, organized through a Facebook group page by Union County Adopt-a-Park adopters Marlene and Nate Hamm, highlights the significance community volunteers can make in Union County’s vast parks system.
Armed with an environmentally-friendly cleaner and a power washer, the crew of volunteers successfully restored the stone wall.
“On behalf of the Freeholder Board, I extend sincere gratitude to the Hamm Family and the community of volunteers in Rahway who made the natural beauty of Union County’s Milton Lake Park a priority on their Sunday morning,” said Freeholder Bruce H. Bergen. “The commitment of Adopt-a-Park volunteers helps to keep our parks beautiful, clean, and safe for everyone in the community to enjoy.”
The Union County Parks System includes 36 parks spanning 6,200 acres. It is a rich and diverse system of parks maintained with the help of hundreds of dedicated volunteers throughout the year.
