Project Playground 2.0 Newsflash

Project Playground 2.0 is in the final lap of its fundraising effort to rebuild Denville’s central playground at Gardner Field. Started in 2016 with a July 4th fundraising event at the fireworks display, the committee has raised over $165,000 towards its $250,000 goal. We appreciate the support from the citizens of Denville and surrounding towns and local businesses who have generously contributed to the effort.
