Recreation Committee

easter egg hunt


The Frelinghuysen Recreation Committee is dedicated to enhancing the lives of our residents through youth athletics, community programs and sponsored events.


Our goals are to help ensure that our parks, fields, trails and facilities are maintained, accessible and safe for all our residents to enjoy.   We will work to keep a list of suggestions for additions, modifications and updates to the recreation programs, facilities and policies to reflect the needs and diversity of our community.

Our recreational sports programs are designed to educate, equip and empower our youth athletes, volunteers and parents.  Our hope is that through team play, hard work, dedication and commitment all involved will get a greater sense of team above self.  We believe that when you put the needs of your team before yourself great things in life can be accomplished.

Through our youth athletic programs we offer Basketball, Soccer and Softball.  Our goal is to help introduce young athletes to various sports and teach them the basic fundamentals and skill sets required for each sport.  We advocate for fair play for all players and work to ensure that all players receive equal playing time regardless of skill.

We have several classes that are available to our community at our Rec Center / Frelinghuysen Forest Preserve located off Lincoln Laurel Road.
