Cumulative Species Listing

Encompassing 140 acres, Pennington Park provides outdoor recreation and environmental education for all to enjoy. With views of the beautiful Rancocas Creek, the park features several habitat types including forests, wetlands, tidal pond and marshland, creek shoreline, and meadows.

The park offers a chance to see nature at its finest. Observation piers and blinds are sited to capture a variety of these habitats and the wildlife they support. Birders will be particularly rewarded as the meadow habitats mature and attract upland bird species. In addition to hiking, biking or rollerblading on the extensive trail network, visitors can enjoy the traditional park green and picnic areas. Two age-appropriate playgrounds and several picnic shelters are available in a beautifully landscaped central trailhead area. Dog owners will enjoy two dog play areas, one for large dogs and one for small. For gardeners, there are more than 100 garden plots that can be leased seasonally, including 6 accessible gardens. For information on the Community Gardens please call (856) 642-3850.

We hope you enjoy your park! Pennington Park is open to the public 7AM to dusk.
