Charles Park Gets Some Fresh Mulch for Playing
The playground at the end of Monmouth Boulevard in Oceanport got a new layer of chips on Monday.
The new chips are part of ongoing maintenance of borough parks, according to Councilman Joseph Irace.
He said in an e-mail, "The Parks and Recreation committee, under the liaison of Jerry Bertekap, Recreation Coordinator Joanne Hunt and chaired by Mike Minervini with the Oceanport Public Works Department, maintain a schedule for necessary maintenance."
The group got wind of the existing thin layer of mulch at Charles Park from a resident through Facebook, said Irace, and Bertkap took the request to public works.
He added, "As part of our plan, we hope to replace all the mulch with the new long lasting material that you see in some of the other areas in town."
