Mendham Township Historic Park at Pitney Farm

Make Your Mark on the Park!

The first round of sponsorships will close on September 30, 2021, so please visit the park and make your choices as soon as possible.

The Mendham Township Historic Park at Pitney Farm is a beautiful seven-acre gem in the center of the Mendhams and a place to relax and soak up nature on the Central Lawn, the Upper Lawn or in the Walled Garden.

30+ specimen trees are among the new plantings in this lovely oasis, including shingle oaks along the Central Lawn, white oaks lining Shelton Road and a double row of Green Mountain sugar maples at the entrance area. 

These trees are available for dedication to loved ones and friends or for adoption by individuals, groups or others supporting this new park. 

Other park features available for sponsorship are the volunteer-managed Walled Garden, Seed House and Gazebo, including a shed for storing the volunteer gardeners’ equipment. A proposed fence along Shelton and Cold Hill Roads also welcomes sponsors.

 

Each dedication, adoption and sponsorship will be acknowledged with a stone marker and plaque inscribed with words chosen by the donor.
