Work weekends are held each spring and fall. The time is used to open or close the lake, clean up the common areas and perform any required projects or maintenance. Participation helps to reduce costs and keep the monthly assessments low. The Forest Hill Park By-laws require one person over the age of sixteen (16) from each member household to participate. Failure to participate or sign-out after the full day will result in a $200 assessment. If you have a hardship that will prevent you from attending a work weekend, please contact the Board Secretary so that you can appear before the Board and request and exception.
Excerpt from Article IX, Section 3 of the By-Laws:
Two work weekends shall be scheduled annually, one in the spring and one in the fall. A minimum of one person from each Member family is required to work one day at each of the two weekends. The committee shall coordinate tasks to be accomplished and materials to be utilized. Should any Member choose not to participate in a work weekend, they will be fined [$200*]; or such other amount as the Board may from time to time determine, which fine shall be a lien on the Members interest and collectable in the same manner as an assessment. The Committee shall present a report to the Board as to the participants in and accomplishments of the work weekends.*The Board of Trustees has increased the fine since its inception.
Yes. Please use the “Reserve the Picnic Area” option. The Secretary will contact you to confirm. If you are planning on twenty-five (25) guests or more, you must hire a life guard. Please note that the reservation is designed to prevent multiple large parties from occurring on the same day, but individual members may still elect to use the beach and picnic facilities.
Yes. Although the lake is private and only members and their guests may fish there, the state still requires a fishing license for anyone sixteen (16) years of age or older. You can get a license online at the NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife site.
