The mission of the Mahwah Township Recreation Department is to coordinate the recreational activities within the township. In cooperation with the Recreation Committee, the Mahwah Youth Sports Boosters, the Mahwah Board of Education, and the Mahwah Department of Public Works, the Recreation Department oversees the efficient and safe use of public areas that are maintained for purpose of community events; youth, high school, and adult sports; passive recreation; picnic areas; playgrounds; and walking paths.

The Recreation Director develops the schedule for recreational and sporting events on township owned fields. The priority use of fields is scheduled by the Recreation Director. Click here for copy of Recreation Department Handbook.
