Whether it’s history or hiking, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the Burlington County Parks System! With more than 1,000 acres of developed parkland, 3,500 acres of land slated for park development, and a regional trail system that will provide a link between the parks, the residents of Burlington County can enjoy natural settings, recreational water access, picnic facilities, and play areas that are close to home.

The newly opened Kinkora Trail extends from Mansfield’s municipal park to Island Road, more than 2 miles of paved trail for hiking or biking. Bring a lunch and enjoy the picnic tables that overlook scenic forest and field. This is the third regional trail segment in what will be a system-wide trail network.

Heritage & History

Preserving our county’s heritage and making history come alive through our parks system is a key mission of the Board of Chosen Freeholders. Preservation and restoration work at Historic Smithville Park will provide visitors with a window into the Industrial Revolution, and the Historic Prison Museum, a National Historic Landmark, tells an intriguing story of early American architecture and prison life.

You’ll find endless opportunities to enjoy yourself!

We wish to thank those visiting our parks during this crazy time. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued guidance for social distancing while enjoying the outdoors. The guidance recommends maintaining a minimum distance of 6 feet from others. Please move to trail sides while passing other hikers and announce that you are passing while approaching slower hikers.
Remember to “go” before you go. For the safety of visitors and Park System staff, our restrooms and portable toilets are closed in all of the parks.
Park Rangers are and will remain on duty while the parks are open and have noticed that many of you are helping by picking up litter as you walk the trails - Thank you! Your assistance with keeping the parks litter free is much appreciated. If you see something that needs our attention, please contact a Park Ranger by phone at 609-668-5164. Please be aware that Rangers will be practicing social distancing as recommended by the CDC. When you see them in the parks, please respect their safety and yours by remaining at least 6 feet from them at all times.
Please continue to enjoy the parks, nature and fresh air, but please do everything possible to keep yourself and others safe by following the basic guidelines.
