SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Union County Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski, Vice Chair Al Mirabella, and Freeholders Rebecca Williams and Andrea Staten joined Union County Deputy County Manager Amy Wagner, Scotch Plains Mayor Al Smith, Township officials and student athletes at the opening of the new turf fields at Union County’s Ponderosa Park in Scotch Plains.

The two multi-use fields will serve local lacrosse, soccer, field hockey and football teams. Other improvements include tree planting, repaving the entrance and a general “sprucing up” of the 23-acre park that opened in 2012.
