Changes Coming to Farrell Field in South Orange

South Orange, New Jersey: Volunteers are needed to help clean up an Essex County park this weekend. 

The Park and Woods Clean-Up Day will be held this Saturday, April 23rd, at Farrell Field in South Orange. According to the Farrell Field Park Conservancy, which is sponsoring the event, attendees will remove litter and debris from the field and the wooded area behind it from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Farrell Field is located on Walton Avenue between Lenox Avenue and Audley Street. 

The removal of litter is not the only change coming to the area surrounding the park. NJ American Water is continuing construction on a new water pumping station near the road to the South Orange Department of Public Works, and CrossFit studio Run Jump Lift is opening a temporary location inside the former Jersey Animal Coalition shelter, which has been vacant for nearly a year and a half.
