In 2015-2016 the Borough developed a Master Site Plan for Lenape and Menlo Parks.  Through a grant from the Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources, a Study Committee was formed.  The Study Committee conducted a series of public hearings and stakeholder meetings in addition to an on-line survey and key person interviews to assess the recreational needs of the community as well as the priorities for park development and resource protection.  The draft Master Plan and Appendix are accessible here:
