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; a new Adult Fitness Park in Memorial Park, a beautiful entrance sign to Memorial Park, outdoor benches added to Gregory Park and the Fair Lawn Arboretum and the new Monte Weed Recreation Turf Complex. Additionally, two Pickleball Courts have been added to Warren Point Annex and a Splash Pad at Memorial Park will be constructed in 2021. 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.
