Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: Park on Canterbury Rd

The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].


Dear Mayor,

Recently there was a letter discussing the park on Canterbury Rd. You said some items were back ordered and that once everything arrives they will resume redoing the park. I would like to thank you as I see they have been working the past week or so to get the park all redone.

I am writing regarding the path that leads to the Canterbury Park from Tanglewood. It seems that this piece of township owned land has been forgotten. It is in a constant state of disarray and in need of care. There’s weeds growing there, branches sticking out, a broken fence, etc.. This is a very used path and really needs some TLC from the township consistently. Sometimes it’s the neighborhood kids that trim the bushes and cut the grass in the path. It would really be good if the township can pave the path but that might be asking for too much. It’s extremely difficult to wheel carriages or ride bikes on the path in the condition that it is in.

Thank you for all you help.

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning,

I’m happy to hear that work has begun. I have asked our Public Works Director to look at the path and surrounding area to see what we can do to get it cleaned up and make the area more accessible for neighboring residents.

Thanks for the suggestion.

  1. Hi Mr Cole’s. Run for president, I’ll vote for you! Thnx for making lkwd great again! Fix the traffic in town and you can be dictator for all I care 🙂

  2. I am very glad to hear that the repairs have begun. Although i will be holding my breath ( and turning a shade of blue) till it’s completed, i must say that i am happy to see that this forum of “talking to the mayor” actually works.
    Thank you to Mr. Mayor & thank you to this website.

  3. The toys seem to have one feature that is electrically powered. Could we request that you not connect the electricity? We want wholesome entertainment. Any electricity disturbs that. And Shabbos will be a problem.
