Refreshments will be served.
Originally constructed as a school and once used as offices by the Drug Abuse Resistance Education New Jersey, the Activity Center is the newest addition to Clayton Park.  Tucked in the western part of the county, the 443-acre park is known for its hiking and bicycling opportunities.  With the addition of the Activity Center, the Park System plans to expand the park’s recreational offerings.  Upcoming programs include Introduction to Watercolor PaintingRocket Kids, and Preserving Summer’s Bounty.  Pick up a copy of the Park System’s fall issue of its Program Directory for a full listing.
