Girls Softball Dugouts

The Friends of Ely Park responded to a long overdue need for the girls softball teams. The boys have had structural dugouts for years. Now the girls have the snazziest.

The community’s support of Friends of Ely Park enabled us to make it happen.

The dugouts are used by the youngest softballers all the way up to middle school and girls from the South Hunterdon Regional High School varsity softball team.

Park Entrance and Streetscape

An attractive landscaped entrance to the park is complete along with several sections of new fencing.

The new fence consists of classic elegant wrought iron fencing with traditional brick columns and improved sidewalk lighting for pedestrian safety.
