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!
