Message from Recreation Regarding Spring Programming

It’s always time to plan your next activities at Marlboro Recreation! The Marlboro Township Department of Recreation is proud to present many different activities for your enjoyment.

The Marlboro Township Recreation and Parks Commission is now the Marlboro Township Recreation and Swim Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee is now a division of the Department of Recreation. The former Swim Utility has become part of the newly formed Recreation and Swim Utility, also a division of the Department of Recreation. With these organizational changes, you will begin to see positive changes taking place, including:

  • Online registration for programs is now available. Go to now to set up an account for you and your family. When you are ready to register for a program, all you will have to do is sign up.
  • Electronic communications including an electronic version of the program guide, a Facebook page, and Twitter account.

The Recreation Department oversees all lands, playgrounds, and recreation places of the Township and may adopt suitable rules, regulations and bylaws for the use of these Township properties. In addition, the Recreation Department is responsible for appointing custodians, supervisors, and assistants to plan and operate its various programs and activities.

The Recreation Advisory Committee consists of seven members appointed by the Mayor - one of whom the Mayor designates as the Chairman and presiding officer. Each member is a resident of Marlboro Township and serves without compensation.

Activities and facilities provided by the Recreation Department include summer camp, art and sports camp and camps for persons with special needs, tennis, basketball (grades 2-12), gymnastics, soccer, special needs recreation, adult programs, children's programs, teen programs, wrestling, swimming, softball, spring concerts, track, hockey, roller skating, and rock climbing wall.

Programming is also provided for seniors. The senior brochure, “Best of Times” advertises another full slate of activities for our seniors. These activities include tours, shows, exercise classes, and social services. We invite all of our seniors to join us and become participants in the "FUN". If you have not received a brochure which includes registration for classes, programs, health screenings and special events, please call Marlboro Recreation at (732)-617-0100.

In addition to arranging and providing exhibitions, plays, concerts, games, and contests, the Department conducts studies to select lands for public playgrounds and recreation. These studies are then brought before the Township Council for approbation and appropriate funding.
