In accordance with Governor Phil Murphy’s executive order, all county parks will reopen beginning on Saturday, May 2. At the same time, all state parks in New Jersey will reopen, including Wharton State Forest which stretches into the southeastern part of the county.
Pursuant to the governor’s order, playgrounds, pavilions, visitor centers, and restrooms and dog parks will remain closed. Picnics, organized activities, and team sports will remain prohibited. Parking will be limited to 50 percent capacity in order to ensure social distancing can be maintained. The county will be following these parameters throughout its inventory of green space.
The Camden County Park System’s 21 parks and conservation areas offer over 2,000 acres of natural settings for picnics, family gatherings, sporting events, beautiful waterways for fishing and boating, a wealth of playgrounds and a variety of ball fields that are close to home.
Highlights of the Camden County Park System include the New Brooklyn Park Disc Golf Course, the Watchable Wildlife Trail at Maria Barnaby Greenwald Memorial Park, and the Timber Creek Dog Park. The Park System also includes the award-winning and fully accessible Challenge Grove Park, designed to be enjoyed by everyone regardless of physical ability.
Parks, ball fields, picnic sites and pavilions can be rented for public or private events.
