VERONA, NJ - The Township of Verona welcomes the Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC), which is a statewide community health initiative in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.

This campaign is aimed to reach people of all ages such as the youth, seniors, employees and the overall community health with the goal to create a more active and healthier way of living throughout the town. The team is made up of Municipal Employees including Police & Fire personnel, Local Business Owners, Health & Wellness Professionals and Residents.

Verona is lucky enough to have easy access to several outdoor recreation areas including parks, fields, a track, basketball courts, an Olympic size pool, playgrounds, biking and hiking trails and more!
