SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce that free public Wi-Fi access is available now in 6 new parks throughout the county. There are now a total of 11 county parks and facilities that offer free Wi-Fi.

“We are committed to ensuring that our recreation facilities are up to date and welcoming to a broad range of activities.” said Chairman Bruce Bergen. “Whether it is surfing the web, mapping out the day, setting alarms at home, or posting photos of their children in action, it now becomes a reality for our residents at more locations in our parks systems.”

The Wi-Fi program was an initiative of Freeholder Christopher Hudak when he served as Chairman in 2014. “In today’s interconnected world, it’s important that our residents have the opportunity to stay in touch throughout the day wherever they may be,” said Freeholder Hudak.  “We’re pleased to be able to expand this important service.”
