SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Labor Day signals the unofficial end of summer. Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the summer of 2020 will definitely be one to remember. As September begins to move along, the Spotswood Recreation Department is inviting residents to hit one of the borough's parks on a September Saturday and share their adventures whether it is basketball, tennis, some fetch with a furbaby, reading or family time on the playground. Residents can send their photos to SpotswoodREC@spotswoodboro.com to be featured in the Spotswood Recreation Department's Saturdays in the Park initiative on their Facebook page.

With virtual school kicking off for the Spotswood School District on September 2, the Spotswood Recreation Department wants to remind residents the importance of stepping away from screens and enjoying some time outdoors. Spotswood has five parks to check out. The borough's parks include the Mundy Avenue Park, the Rieder Road Park, the Michael Road Park, the Spotswood War Memorial and tennis courts on Summerhill Road and the East Main Street Park on East Main Street and Dora Avenue.

The Spotswood Recreation Department recently released the first issue of its monthly health and wellness newsletter Community Connections. September's issue can be found on the REC Department's Facebook page or the Spotswood Borough website.
