Mayor Steve DiDonato and Hammonton Town Council, along with the Parks & Recreation Commission, initiated a master planning process for the Hammonton Lake Park. The goal is to identify the unique characteristics of the Lake Park recreation and open space system, accommodate the needs of current residents, and respond to the expected future needs of our community. The master planning process is a collaborative approach that incorporates town staff and consultant expertise as well as local knowledge and institutional history that only the members of our community can provide.
Taylor Design Group, a design firm specializing in Landscape Design and Planning, is actively working with the town to propose improvements to our Lake Park. The Town’s Engineer, Adams, Rehmann & Heggan, is also actively involved, along with the grant writing firm, Triad Associates, and various committees, commissions, groups, Town officials and volunteers.
