Caring for our ParksPARKS Coytesville 2

Fort Lee's beautiful parks host a wide variety of activities and events throughout the year ranging from community-wide cultural events to individuals relaxing in their favorite park. The Parks Department is responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of the parks, and other public areas, including lawn cutting and leaf removal. Parks are inspected every morning to make sure all is order. We kindly ask that residents make full use of the trash receptacles, and please, do not dump your household refuse at any park. Any person caught disposing of garbage in one of the Borough's parks will be ino dumpingssued a fine by the Fort Lee Police Department.
