(Cherry Hill, NJ) – Next month, the Board of Commissioners will begin a $1.3 million construction project to transform two playgrounds in Newton Lake Park. The Newton Lake and Haddon Creek playgrounds are well loved amenities in the 103-acre park and are both utilized by hundreds of children and families on a daily basis.


The transformation of both playgrounds will include the installation of all new playground equipment, ADA accessible poured-in-place rubber surfacing, picnic tables, benches and ADA accessible paths.


“These improvements are necessary to ensure that these treasured community assets can continue serving our children and families for years to come,” said Commissioner Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the Parks Department. “These playgrounds are two highlights of Newton Lake Park and we cannot wait to unveil the new and improved sites later this fall.” 


The project is expected to break ground in August and will take approximately 90 days to complete.


Newton Lake Park encompasses over 103 acres, running through Collingswood, Oaklyn and Haddon Township and is bounded by Cuthbert Boulevard and the White Horse Pike. The parks amenities include the two playgrounds, three picnic areas, 2.43 miles of bike paths, three fishing piers, Matrimony Garden and a boat ramp.
