(Lindenwold, NJ) – The Camden County Parks Department will be closing the Timber Creek Dog Park until further notice due to a fallen tree which impacted a section of the park’s fencing. Cleanup is expected to begin tomorrow, however there is currently no timetable regarding repairs, nevertheless they will be expedited and done as soon as possible.
“For the safety of the owners and their pets, we’ve decided that the best thing to do is to close the park until it can be restored to its usual condition,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Parks Department. “The removal of fencing can be dangerous because it may allow pets to escape the park, and can allow other wild animals to enter. We ask that until the repairs can be made, owners use the Cooper River Dog Park or other temporary locations to play and exercise with their pets.”
The park will be reopened as soon as repairs are completed and it is deemed safe for owners and their pets. Cooper River Dog Park is located at 953 Park Blvd. in Pennsauken. Owners may also visit neighboring Connolly Dog Park, which is located at 605 Centennial Blvd. in Voorhees.
Camden County is home to a number of wonderful public spaces and resources during the summer. For more information about the department, our parks, concerts, and events, visit www.camdencounty.com/service/parks/.
