Elm Street Recreation Complex
On 19 acres of uplands, Florham Park Borough has created the new Elm Street Park with surfaces and amenities for baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, football, cheerleading, basketball, passive recreation, dog-walking, and playground equipment. A snack shack is in progress as well. The first-ever artificial turf field in the Borough enthusiastically opened for organized, permitted use by F.P. Soccer Association, FP/EH Football Club, and FP Cheerleaders in a ceremony attended by 750+ people on September 5, 2014 for the Fall 2014 season. The new Elm Street Park is designed to supplement, not replace, the existing fields throughout the Borough. Grass fields are anticipated to open as soon as grass has grown/rooted to a point that can tolerate the demands of sports play.

Fred Stobaeus & Lou Boyd Awards
Administered by the Recreation Committee, these two annual awards are named for Fred Stobaeus and Lou Boyd, whose volunteer efforts were instrumental in building the borough’s recreation programs. Each spring, the awards are given to Florham Park students who are outstanding in sportsmanship, leadership, athletic ability, and academic achievement, and who are positive role models in the community. Fred Stobaeus was known as “Mr. Recreation” and was chairman of the first Recreation Committee. In 1955, he founded the Little League baseball program in Florham Park. Lou Boyd was also an active promoter of recreation opportunities and was a long-time secretary of the Recreation Committee. In 1966, the Fred Stobaeus Award was established. The Lou Boyd Award followed in 1976. Click here to download a list of previous winners.Dog & Alcohol Ordinances
