Challenge Grove Park

COVID-19 Updates:  

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.



Challenge Grove (17.77 acres) is located in Cherry Hill at the corner of Bortons Mill Road & Caldwell Road.
