Municipal Park Development Program


The Board of Chosen Freeholders established the Burlington County Municipal Park Development Program to assist its partner municipalities in the development and improvement of parks for outdoor passive and active recreation and in their efforts to preserve open space and farmland.

Through this program the Freeholders will offer grants to build or improve municipal parks, to offset the local cost share required by the county’s Farmland Preservation Program, or to provide additional financial assistance for acquisition of locally important open space in conjunction with the county’s Local Open Space Preservation Program.
