    Cloverdale Farms Park, 34 Cloverdale Rd, BarnegatThis 80-acre cranberry farm had been operating for nearly 100 years and is historically significant in Ocean County, which led to its preservation by the Parks Department.

Other improvements consist of the conversion of an old residential structure into a remote comfort station with modern utilities and complete septic system installation. Construction consists of a new maintenance building with ecologically friendly sitework and hardscape, including associated parking facilities, sidewalks and necessary ADA compliant access. Improvements to the cranberry bogs include replacement of all the sluice gate structures.
