Department of Parks & Recreation

The Department of Parks & Recreation is located at the Human Service Building at 55 Reid Street. The Department manages all of the recreation programs and special events in the borough and is also responsible for overseeing the functioning of the many parks in town, in concert with the Department of Public Works.

The South River Recreation Department offers year round sports and activities to children ages 5-16. We also offer fitness classes to all resident and non-resident adults.

Sports programs include basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, street hockey, wrestling, t-ball, and bowling. We're looking at other ways to meet the needs of residents in this borough.

In the summer, children who have completed 1st grade through 8th grade are invited to attend our free summer recreation program. We offer a variety of gym activities, indoor/outdoor games and arts and crafts.

Special events throughout the year include the Spring Egg Hunt, Fishing Derby, Summer Fireworks, Halloween Party, Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony, and Holiday Party.

Seasonal employment opportunities are available to South River High School students.

Applications can be picked up at the recreation office. Students must maintain good academic standing in order to be considered for employment
