Spring means many chances for enjoying the outdoors away from your Millburn-Short Hills real estate. The Millburn Township Recreation and Parks Department has been busy getting a great assortment of activities on the calendar. Track and Field for 4th through 8th graders will begin the week of March 26th. This is a great opportunity for youngsters to get in shape, feel the joys of competition and sportsmanship, and make new friends. Practices will be held one or two nights a week at Millburn High School Track or Taylor Park. This program also includes competitive dual meets with other nearby towns. The registration fee is $75. Other sports programs for youth staring in April include tee-ball baseball and tee-ball softball, girls softball, and youth tennis group lessons.
