Normandy Park Improvements

Middletown Awarded $250,000 Open Space Grant from Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders

Funds to be Utilized for Normandy Park Improvements 

Middletown Township was selected by the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders to receive a $250,000 grant to help fund the Normandy Park Improvements Project.

In December 2019, the Middletown Township Committee unanimously approved a $5.15 million bond ordinance to install multi-use turf fields at Normandy Park and to convert a grass field at Nut Swamp School to synthetic turf. By re-purposing Normandy Park, the Township can get maximum utilization for both the school and recreational community and provide them with the amenities they need. The goal is for the Township to be able to serve a variety of sports and age groups with fields, parking improvements and lighting within the same vicinity.

“The Township Committee and I are very appreciative of Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and the Monmouth Board of Chosen Freeholder’s continued support of the Township’s efforts to provide state-of-the-art facilities that our youth need and deserve,” said Mayor Tony Perry. “We are proud to be able to utilize dedicated Open Space Trust funds to help make this project become a reality starting this spring.”

Camp Logan, the NAACP Image Award-winning play, is based on real-life events in Houston in 1917 when members of the highly-decorated 24th Infantry Regiment were subjected to extreme Jim Crow treatment. Walker's nuanced, suspenseful dramatization details the buildup to the riot that left dozens dead, including 17 African American soldiers hanged for mutiny.
