Message from the Superintendent of Recreation & Parks:

Our Fair Lawn Recreation and Parks Department staff is committed to providing top notch cultural, leisure and recreational/sports activities to all the residents of Fair Lawn.  Various parks and recreational facilities have been updated; such as the Fair Lawn Community Center, Vander Plaat Turf Field and the New Brookdale Park Playground.  We are continually striving to improve these sites for all our residents to enjoy.

Thank you to all our full-time and part-time staff members, borough volunteers and coaches of all our sports programs, the various civic and business organizations that continue to assist and sponsor our programs, the Board of Education  and many other individuals and groups that make Fair Lawn such an wonderful place to reside.
