Improvements Set to Start This Week at Camden ParkLast Edited:
State and local officials gathered in Camden to announce a new improvement project for the area.
On Tuesday, April 11th, members of the Freeholder Board along with representatives with the City of Camden, and the Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, announced they are working together on an improvement project for Camden’s Alberta Woods Park.
The estimated $775,000 improvement project will include a new and expanded playground and sprayground along with a graded lawn for sports practices and active recreation.
Officials say making sure the community has a safe, clean, and green open space to enjoy is a key component to improving the quality of life for all of Camden's residents.
"Parks are just that very special part of any neighborhood of a place you call home," said Rep. Donald Norcross, of New Jersey's first congressional district. "Whether it's the children, the teachers, the administrators, the county, the city, everybody working together this is what you can do — you can have great parks, great schools, and a great city."
The improved Alberta Woods Park will also contain a new stage, a new sidewalk that will serve as a walking loop, new seating areas, new security cameras, and a new rain garden to capture stormwater.
Improvements to the park are set to begin later this week.
