Mendham Township Historic Park at Pitney Farm

Make Your Mark on the Park!

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

30+ specimen trees will be 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 other organizations supporting this new park.

Other Park features available for sponsorship are bluebird houses, rustic benches, and the Walled Garden, the Seed House and the 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.
