Cooper River Park Receives Grants to Improve Facilities

Last Edited:

Some big changes are on the way for a popular riverfront park in Camden County thanks to new funding.

Officials at Cooper River Park have received two grants, which will be used to make much-needed improvements to the facility.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the Garden State Preservation Trust awarded the park representatives with the Green Acres Grant, worth $1 million, to replace the Armitage Pavilion and make several other improvements to various community spaces the facility offers.

Cooper River Park officials also received a separate $50,000 grant to make improvements to the Watchable Wildlife Trail and an exhibit in the Cherry Hill Environmental Center.

The new upgrades will expand recreational options in Camden County.
