Rooz is a 45 minute class for children ages 2 1/2 to 5.   We start the class with a warm up where we reach for our toes, fly our butterflies to far away lands and then work on gross motor skills where we jump like kangaroos and run like cheetahs.  Then it is time to work on the equipment we bring each week.  Your child will work on skills on all of the events including the bars, vault, balance beam, and the floor exercise. We focus on teaching skills in a positive way so the child leaves the class more confident and willing to try new things.

Class space is limited.

New Jersey American Water is preparing to replace approximately 1,500 feet of aging 4-inch main that was installed in the 1920s with new 8-inch ductile iron main along Highview Avenue (from Anderson Hill Road to Olcott Avenue). The existing pipe has reached the end of its useful life and will be replaced with new pipe. The project also includes replacing fire hydrants and utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route (see reverse for more information about service lines). These improvements should enhance water service reliability and water flows for household consumption and fire fighting.

As part of this improvement project, we’ll also be installing a meter pit at the curb area of your property, in our right of way. After installation, all that will be visible is a 15-inch circular cover that will be flush with the ground.

Don't forget to sign up for Bernardsville's Recreation 2017 Winter Enrichment Programs for kids.

All classes are held at the Bedwell School, located at 141 Seney Dr. See this year’s offerings below.

You may register online at https://register.communitypass.net/Bernardsville. If your child has any special needs, or if you have any questions, please contact Bernardsville Recreation at 908- 766-2546.

Provisional ballot count included for local election.

Olcott Avenue was the first street in Bernardsville designed to appeal specifically to the rising class of local merchants and entrepreneurs. It was a planned neighborhood of comfortable homes constructed in the most fashionable architectural styles, on a broad new avenue set apart from working class neighborhoods. Restrictions were written into each deed by the developer to control how each buyer could use his property. The result was a residential district of substantial dwellings in a homogenous setting. A number of architectural and technological innovations of the period are evident in the district, as a result of designs created by some of the most notable architects in America. The Historic district, established in 2009, has fifty-six contributing buildings, including a school, a church, a parsonage and thirty-seven dwellings, as well as carriage houses, garages and World War I memorial plaques. As a whole, the district possesses excellent historical integrity.

The Tour

Welcome to the Olcott Historic District Walking Tour. The tour covers a distance of approximately 1.6 miles.
