(Camden, NJ) – The Board of Commissioners, in collaboration with the city of Camden, Pennsauken and Winslow townships will be hosting two public meetings to update residents on the local segments of the Camden County LINK Trail, a proposed 34-mile regional trail that will stretch from the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to the south end of Winslow Township.

The meetings are scheduled for July 29 at the Camden County Historical Society, 1900 Park Boulevard in Camden from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and for July 31, at the Star Building, 100 Erial Road in Sicklerville from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“With a project this big, it is important that our entire community is up to date,” said Commissioner Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the Parks Department. “There have been several developments in the last year pertaining to this project, so we want to come together with our constituents to discuss where we are at.”

Both meetings will include a presentation by the county’s design consultant NV5 and boards to update residents on the specific trail segments, and the overall progress of the Camden County LINK Trail. The specific trail segments are located along the Cooper River in Camden and Pennsauken as well as in New Brooklyn Park in Winslow Township.

These segments of the LINK trail have received federal funding and will start construction by the end of next year. The first segment will consist of about one mile of new trail between Flanders Avenue in Camden City and Cooper River Park, including four bridges over the Cooper River and Route 130.  When combined with existing trails in Gateway Park, it will create a continuous 2.3-mile connection to the trails in Cooper River Park and will be a route for Camden residents to reach the park.  The second segment will be a 1.6-mile-long trail within New Brooklyn Park and will include a bridge over the scenic Great Egg Harbor River. 

“This is a transformative project that will enhance the lives of our residents and visitors even further,” Nash continued. “We see the importance of investing in accessible, green spaces and combined with our ongoing $100 million parks revitalization initiative, Camden County is on track to become one of the top outdoor destinations on the East Coast.”
