Milos Rec Center

Woodbridge - Mayor John E. McCormac and the Woodbridge Township Department of Recreation, along with  Woodbridge Township Cheer and Wresting teams, announced the official “Grand Opening” of the newly renovated Milos Recreation Center in Port Reading.  The former Milos Hall-HESS Training Facility, donated to the Township by HESS, was renovated into a “state-of-the-art” training and tournament center for Woodbridge Township Cheer and Wrestling teams - Iselin Giants Cheer, Colonia Patriots Cheer, Fords Bearcats Cheer, Golden Knights Cheer, Port Reading Saints Cheer, Woodbridge Wrestling Club and Woodbridge Wolfpack Wrestling.   

“One of the most important investments we can make in our community is to provide the best public use recreational facilities, parks, and playgrounds that we possibly can.  This year, we put the final touches on the $26 million investment in community recreational facilities that included new multi-use turf football, soccer, softball, baseball and cricket fields at our high schools and middle schools, along with new playgrounds and recreational facilities at many of our elementary schools.  With the donation of Milos Hall and adjacent property from HESS, and needed upgrades to the existing West Avenue Park and Bowtie pool complex, we determined to undertake development of a new public-use recreational facility and sports complex that will serve the entire Township,” said Mayor John E. McCormac.  

According to Mayor McCormac, the centerpiece of the Port Reading multi-use recreation facility is the 11,400 sq. ft. Milos Recreation Center which was renovated into a specially-designed and equipped indoor training facility and tournament center for cheerleading and wrestling.  Plans for the Milos Recreation Center & Sports Complex include a walking/jogging path with multiple loops and fitness stations; active recreational spaces which will include a Level/Multi-Sport field, basketball courts; tennis courts; pickleball courts; sand and hard-surfaced volleyball courts; multiple playgrounds with age-appropriate play equipment.

The Bowtie Pool area of the recreation facility will include a basketball court, age-appropriate playground with play equipment; a spray park; a high school-sized soccer field and a youth-sized soccer field. All recreation features will be ADA compliant, providing barrier-free access to the community. Additionally, ADA-compliant parking will serve both sides of the park, providing parking to accommodate more than 125 vehicles.  A perimeter fence will provide a border for the park, separating visitors from the traffic on West Avenue and the Conrail train tracks that border the property on the north and east sides. High-efficiency LED lighting will be provided for the sports courts, parking lots and pathways, extending the use of the complex and providing a safe environment for visitors.
