Improvements announced for Cherry Hill’s Challenge Grove Park


The Camden County Freeholder Board’s parks department is making improvements to the multi-purpose trail at the county’s Challenge Grove Park in Cherry Hill.

“These improvements to Challenge Grove will further the facility’s role as a place where kids of all abilities can play and interact together with their friends and family,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Parks Department. “As elected officials our goal is to improve the quality of life in Camden County, and this extraordinary place does just that for a very special group of athletes.”

Construction began today on the $1,197,730 project that includes the refurbishment of the asphalt walking and biking trail from Grove Street to Caldwell Road, new landscape plantings, and the installation of decorative fencing and trail signage. The project also features the construction of curbing and rain water infiltration bed from Kings Highway to Caldwell Road, along with landscape improvements at the entrance to Challenge Grove Park along Caldwell Road.

Camden County’s Challenge Grove Park is an award-winning fully accessible park at the corner of Borton’s Mill and Caldwell Roads in Cherry Hill. It is also home to Jake’s Place Playground for children with physical limitations.
