Upcoming Events

  • Gloucester County Firefly Festival POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN; NEW TIME IS Sunday, July 22nd, from 8 PM to 9:30 PM. The park is normally closed after dark, but tonight you can see "nature's light show" along with fun, educational activities. A three-quarter mile, self-guided loop trail will be marked out. Free, but pre-registration is requested. See the event brochure for more details.
