The Children’s House was renovated in 2003 funded with a grant won by the Conservancy from NJ with Green Acres Program and matching funding from Essex County. It sits adjacent to the playground. It has bathrooms, benches and tables used for indoor children’s arts and crafts, reading and other learning and other community activities. It is also staffed by Essex County caretakers during the day, three seasons per year.
At the same time, the grants covered new benches, light stanchions and trash containers. It also covered repaving all the paths throughout the park as well as completing the path surrounding the pond.
