Spring into Action at Malaga Lake Park.

Your help is needed on Saturday, April 30, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, at Malaga Lake Park to clean up the park and Malaga Park Drive, plant shrubs, and get everything ready for the season.   Families are welcome, although children must be accompanied by an adult.

Malaga Lake Park is one of Franklin Township’s main recreation sites for hiking, fishing, picnicking, using the playgrounds, and enjoying the lake and out-of-doors generally.  The Township is committed to improving conditions at the Park this year, starting with creating a shrub/tree buffer that will help to exclude geese from the grassy areas.   The planting at this event will be the start of many improvements.

SPRING FORWARD AT THE PARK on APRIL 30!
