In 2018, we launched a Capital Campaign “For the Greener Good” to upgrade the landscape and lawn at the Lincroft Village Green.
Rehabilitating such a large area is not a walk in the park. So far, we have raised just over $15,000 of our $20,000 goal. Any donation, great or small, is appreciated. Through donations made by our loyal members, we are making the Lincroft Green a little greener every year.
Our efforts to make capital improvements actually began in the fall of 2017, when the LVGA Board of Directors decided to kick off the project using existing funds to have a well and sprinkler system installed. Working with the township, PickWick Well Drilling, and Garden Irrigation, we were able to acquire what every beautiful lawn and garden needs: WATER!
With our initial fundraising efforts and donations made by our members, we have installed a well, water softening system, sprinkler system, rehabilitated the lawn in the center circle, hired tree services, and planted new shrubs. In the spring of 2019, we expanded the sprinkler system and planted several perennial shrubs and flowers. We also were thrilled to plant two beautiful Northern Red Oaks which were donated to the park in 2021 by the Molzon Family. Community volunteers, Cub Scout Troop 210, Boy Scout Troops 110 and 246, and dedicated LVGA directors have spent countless hours doing trash sweeps, weeding, mulching, and planting. It's truly been a community effort!
Although the Lincroft Village Green is a public park owned by Middletown Township, the LVGA has been the steward of its enhancement and use. The Lincroft Green is an integral part of what the LVGA as a civic organization stands for: working together to save open space, improving quality of life for residents, and providing a safe and beautiful place for all to gather. Make your donation today...we have almost met our goal!
