Park at Pitney Farm Taking Donations Through December 31

Release Date: November 30, 2021
Make Your Mark On the Park!

Park at Pitney Farm Taking Donations Through December 31

Looking for a special holiday gift? Be a part of “making your mark” on the Historic Park at Pitney Farm.

Mendham Township is taking tax-deductible donations through the end of the year for newly planted specimen trees and the historic Walled Garden area at the new park, located at One Cold Hill Road.

Dozens of trees, including white oaks, shingle oaks, dawn redwoods and dogwoods, can be dedicated in memory of or in honor of loved ones or as a way for Mendham families to “Make Your Mark on the Park.” Dedications come with a marker and inscribed plaque to acknowledge donors. Donations for the oaks and dawn redwoods are $1,000 each and $500 for the dogwoods.

“Honor Roll” donations also are being accepted to support the historic Walled Garden, Seed House and Gazebo – all structures that were part of the original Pitney Farm, acquired by Mendham Township in 2009 as permanently preserved open space.

Honor Roll contributions of $750 for gold, $500 for silver and $300 for bronze will be acknowledged with an engraved plate on a plaque installed in the Walled Garden area.

The “Make Your Mark” campaign, launched in September 2021, has created a dedicated reserve fund to help maintain and improve the new seven-acre, handicapped-accessible park. Already, dozens of trees, benches and park amenities have been dedicated by donors from Mendham Township, Mendham Borough and even as far away as Washington State.

Donations may be made by online or by check payable to the Township of Mendham/Historic Park, attention David Guida, P.O.520, Brookside, NJ 07926. If sending a check, please contact David Guida prior to postmarking to guarantee that the item is earmarked especially for you. Please include a note with your contact information, the type of donation (tree or honor roll) and the inscription for the marker or name for the honor roll plate.

Credit card donations can be made via the Township’s Community Pass 

For questions, please contact Pitney@mendhamtownhip.org or dguida@mendhamtownship.org.
