Mulligan Park Upgrades Granted

LT Logo

By Carl Price

VILLAS – Mulligan Park, at Harvard and Tomlin avenues, is scheduled for an almost $2 million facelift, thanks to a $1.5 million bond ordinance passed at the June 15 Lower Township Council meeting and a $400,000 New Jersey Clean Communities grant.
The new park, to be named the Clem Mulligan Sports Complex, will sit on the same footprint as the current park, but will feature considerable upgrades, including a regulation Little League field, a soccer/all-purpose field, resurfaced basketball courts, age-specific playgrounds, a lighted walking path, and a new snack bar with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant bathrooms.
Security concerns at the park were addressed with new lighting and low-height shrubbery. The park will not be completely locked at night, with the walking trail available at all hours.
The playground area will feature new equipment, with age-specific play areas for children 2-5 years old and another for 5-12 years old.
The basketball court backboards were recently upgraded, but the court will be resurfaced.
Parking will be available on the Bates and Caroline avenues sides of the field.
The Sports Complex could go out to bid by early July, with work possibly beginning in early September.
