Aberdeen Twp
Freneau Lands Acquisitions

In partnership with the Trust for Public Land, Aberdeen Township is seeking to acquire land with a combined acreage of approximately 150 acres in separate phases over time. The properties are primarily forested lands, fields and woodlands associated with the stream corridor along Matawan Creek. Preservation of these properties will not only preserve significant natural resources, but also protect the rural character of this area of the Township. Short-term plans include land acquisition, assessment of community needs for outdoor recreation, such as future ball fields, and protection of the remaining areas for passive recreation, watershed and habitat protection.
