Recreation & Cultural Affairs

Due to the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in Essex County, the Township of South Orange Village has decided to close its doors to the public beginning on Monday, November 23, 2020 in an effort to keep Village residents and Village employees safe while continuing to maintain Village services.

The department of recreation and cultural affairs will remain open and functioning. If you have business to take care of, please contact us at 973-378-7754 x2 or email us at: recreation@southorange.org


The mission of the Department of Recreation & Cultural Affairs is to enhance the quality of life in South Orange, by providing a well-rounded program of leisure time activities for community residents of all ages and interests.

COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES

All in person meetings are cancelled, all in person events planned for the near future have been cancelled and we are advising any individuals that use our park to social distance and wear a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained.

As a reminder, the Center for Disease Control defines social distancing as it applies to COVID-19 as "remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance, approximately 6 feet, from others when possible."

We share your disappointment, and want to thank everyone in our community for understanding what a trying time the coming weeks are going to be. We know this is a lot to process, and that you have a lot of responsibilities and concerns to deal with. Please keep in mind this is uncharted territory and there is no handbook on how to respond to these uncertain times. The health and well-being of our community is of utmost importance, and we need to work together to get through this difficult time. We are a resilient community and we will continue to work with all of our partners to safely serve the public in any way possible.
