Recreation Department 

We are sorry to announce that our summer playground programs - Tot Time, Half Day Playground and All Day Playground will need to be cancelled this summer.

This decision was not easy to make, but ultimately had to be because the safety of the children, staff and their families must be paramount.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 public health guidelines and restrictions issued by the CDC prevent us from operating these programs in the way that our children deserve - a fun, engaging, social and interactive experience.

We share your disappointment since we know many of you, including all our staff members, were looking forward to our programs this summer.

For those of you that already registered and pre-paid, refunds will start being issued as soon as possible. Please be patient with us as we work to get everyone refunded.



Congratulations to Emma’s Angels! Parsippany Recreation’s Division B 2020 Women’s Volleyball Champions. If you have a team and would like to join the league please email recreation@parsippany.net2020 Womens Vball B Champs
