Applying for use of a Public Park
Residents may reserve the use of a township park through the Township Clerk’s Office by calling to secure the desired date and providing the office with a completed Application for Use of Parks form and the required fee, if applicable. If there are more than 25 people attending an event, the Township requires proof of insurance, usually through a homeowner’s or renter’s policy. The certificate needs to name the Township as an additional insured for the day of the scheduled event. Please also remember that the parks are still open to the general public while these events are happening. No resident can be turned away from a public park by a private party. There is a $150 security deposit and $25 fee for Florence Township residents to rent the building located at the John A. Roebling Park (FAAD Park) located on Hamilton Avenue. The fee for Non-Florence Township residents who are New Jersey residents is: $300 security deposit and $50 fee for use of the building. Security deposits are returned after the venue is inspected and determined to be in good condition. To secure a date or for more information, please call (609) 499-2525. Completed applications and accompanying paperwork can be mailed to the Florence Township Clerk’s Office, 711 Broad Street, Florence, NJ 08518. Once the application is reviewed and approved, a copy will be mailed back to you. You may also apply in person at the above address. Please remember alcohol is prohibited on public property.
