The crown jewel of the Burlington County Parks System, Smithville Park was once a thriving company town founded in the 1800s by Hezekiah B. Smith, an inventor, entrepreneur and politician who lived in the stately mansion that remains on the property. The annex gallery is located upstairs inside the mansion and is open during exhibits weekly, Thursday - Sunday.

“Thank you all again for submitting such wonderful work and for supporting our parks. Our jurors were very impressed with the high quality of work this year. They felt strongly about highlighting as many works as they could, and I could not agree more. Thank you so much for your time and effort creating such masterpieces.”
