Kingwood Township Park Playground in Frenchtown NJ

Kingwood Township Park Playground in Frenchtown NJ is one of those playgrounds that has undergone major renovations in the last few years. We initially visited in 2015 and were pleasantly surprised when our July 1, 2022 visit resulted in us seeing all the new equipment. Take a look and plan a visit with the kids.

David B. Crabiel Park Playground in Milltown NJ

Despite being off of Route 1, David B. Crabiel Park Playground in Milltown is peaceful! It’s clean, beautifully landscaped and when we were there it was quiet. There were a few people enjoying the paths for biking or running but this isn’t a park for day camps or large crowds when games aren’t in play on the fields.

Jake’s Place Playground in Delran NJ

Jake’s Place Playground at Delran Community Park in Delran New Jersey was recently completed in 2019 and it is an amazing accessible playground in Burlington County. We love the story of Jake’s Place, the idea of Jake’s Place, and how it came about: “Baby Jake” was beloved by many and left this world all too soon as a result of a rare cardiac medical condition. Jake always wore a smile. That smile was never bigger than when he was at a playground. Although Jake was unaware that his illness kept him from accessing many components of a typical playground, his family was not.

Dundee Island Park Playground in Passaic NJ

This is one playground that could be easy to miss if you’re just driving through Passaic, so I’m especially thankful we found it while researching Passaic County playgrounds. Dundee Island Park Playground in Passaic New Jersey is unlike any playground we’ve yet to see in New Jersey. Resembling a marshland of sorts there are so many ways kids can climb, twist, travel, and play in their own pretend swampland.
