Parks and Fields

In an attempt to protect our residents and "flatten the curve" of COVID19 the Township of Bloomfield has closed all ACTIVE RECREATION AREAS of our Municipal Park System to the public effective Friday, March 27th.

Active recreational areas include: Baseball/softball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts and our skate park. 

Our tot-lot playgrounds remain closed.

Currently we are keeping PASSIVE RECREATIONAL AREAS OPEN to the public to provide our residents an opportunity to get outside of their homes and take a walk in their neighborhood park. We ask that anyone using our passive recreational areas to practice social distancing protocols and respect everyone’s personal space.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all deal with this situation and we are sending positive thoughts and well wishes to all!

Cabin Fever series!

The Bloomfield, Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Department appreciates that our residents are adhering to the recommendations to practice social distancing and only leaving your homes when absolutely necessary. As we follow the recommendations from the CDC, we see that following this protocol will allow us to "Flatten the Curve" of the virus. We understand that both active and passive recreational opportunities are essential components to a happy and healthy individual and the community as a whole. With that in mind, we are proud to present our Cabin Fever Series of on-line videos to help you and your family stay fit and active in the comfort of your own home. Stay tuned for some creative and exciting things to follow as we add more videos!

Senior Citizen Bus

DOWNLOAD SCHEDULE (PDF)
Stop & Shop has created a special “Senior Citizen Only (60+)” shopping time from 6:00AM to 7:30AM. We have adjusted our bus schedule to accommodate these special times to better meet the needs of our senior citizen population. We will still have our typical morning senior citizen routes at 8:30AM and 9:30AM. Seniors will now have two daily options. We will NOT have afternoon routes.

This will take effect on Thursday, March 19th. This will be daily and until further notice. We will make adjustments and tweaks as necessary.

Dial A Ride 

We have cancelled all non-essential appointments. We are still taking seniors daily for dialysis, chemotherapy, heart doctors and medications.

**For the safety of our riders and drivers we have implemented a stringent cleaning process for all transportation vehicles.**
