A clean train station, pride-filled residents and blooming flowers are the reasons why the Garden Club of Spring Lake received this year’s NJ Clean Communities Award for Stewardship of Public Lands. The volunteer organization has been an active participant in NJ TRANSIT's Adopt-A-Station program for 10 years, providing landscaping improvements at Spring Lake Station and the adjacent Potter Park. As a result of their expertise in beautiful gardening and design, our customers enjoy a picturesque welcome to the North Jersey Coast Line station while their work is greatly appreciated by NJ TRANSIT and their community!

Promoting civic pride and community involvement, our Adopt-A-Station program is available statewide. If you are a local community group, business or group of individuals who want to help NJ TRANSIT beautify the train station in your community, you can plant and maintain flowers, small trees and shrubs at the station. Organizers must be 18 or older and are responsible for:

  • Picking up litter around the station at least four times a year.
  • Adhering to NJ TRANSIT safety guidelines when on railroad property.
  • Notifying NJ TRANSIT when the work will be performed.

NJ TRANSIT will provide trash bags, safety vests and dispose of any trash that is collected. Participants are recognized with a plaque displayed at the station.

If you are interested in registering for the program, please contact Program Coordinator Deborah Eadie-Dixon at (973) 491-7032.
