Two Eagle Scout candidates, under the supervision of the Conservancy, have recently completed their projects in Brookdale Park!


Nicholas Aloi of West Orange, brought together a team of hard working friends to clear invasive brush along the Bellevue Avenue planting buffer. They then amended the soil and planted the area with dozens of white pine tree saplings. 


Jack Brandon of Montclair, tackled a high profile beautifcation project by preparing the planting bed around Brookdale Park's welcome sign at the Bellevue Avenue vehicular entrance.

We are pleased to announce that the Brookdale Park Conservancy has been awarded a $1000 grant from the Montclair Rotary Club to help with restoring the park's original and historic 1930's Olmsted Brothers planting plan. This spring, the grant money, along with matching funds from individual Conservancy donations collected in 2015, will pay for two dozen new shade trees along Brookdale Park's Grove Street entrance corridor.

Our gratitude goes out to the Montclair Rotary Club for their support of the Brookdale Park and for the continued efforts to improve lives in our local communities. More information on the Rotary and their good works can be found on their website: montclairrotaryclub.com.
