The second phase of work at the new Millstone Park in Millstone Township will receive funding from Monmouth County in the amount of $250,000.
During the April 7 meeting of the Township Committee, officials announced they had received a letter from the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners announcing that Millstone has been selected to receive $250,000 for the ongoing development of Millstone Park.
The funding will be provided through the Monmouth County Municipal Open Space Grant Program.
This is the second time county funding has been awarded for Millstone Park, a 186-acre recreation facility being developed on Red Valley Road. The first phase of the project received $250,000 in funding from the Open Space Grant.
The development of Millstone Park has been ongoing since 2016, but the facility has not yet opened to the public. When completed, the park will have nine general purpose fields (six with lights), restrooms, a kitchen serving facility, a trail that can be used for walking, jogging and horseback riding, a playground, and a boat-accessible pond that can be used for fishing and irrigation.
