Local Beautification and Historical Renovation
Lake Hopatcong Train Station
In November 2014, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation purchased the Lake Hopatcong Train Station in Landing, with the intention of rehabilitating the building in a way that serves as the LHF office as well as a shared community space. To learn more about this project, check out our train station page.
Lee’s Park Pavilion Project
Partnering with the Morris Parks Commission, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation commissioned a feasibility study that would look into ways the old Lee’s Park Pavilion (on Howard Boulevard in Mt. Arlington) could be reused and brought back to working condition. The study began in early 2014 and concluded with a report generated by HMR Architects in September 2014.
The LHF is working with Roxbury Township, Morris County, and the State of New Jersey on a project that would make the Landing “entry” to the lake (the fenced area at the southernmost end of the lake, where Lakeside Boulevard, Landing Road, and Mt. Arlington Boulevard come together) more aesthetically pleasing.
State Park Fountain
Grant money from the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust was secured by the LHF to research the feasibility of returning the State Park Fountain back to working condition, with restored stonework. The feasibility study was concluded in 2016.
