Knight Park ~ Collingswood, New Jersey

 

Collingswood is unique among suburban municipalities in New Jersey in that the center of our borough is a beautiful, approximately seventy acre park dedicated to its residents.

 

Given by Edward C. Knight in 1888, the park has long been enjoyed not only as a great venue for sports activities from high school through Little League and recreational leagues, but also as a natural area of beauty.  The pond and bridge as well as the gazebo and pavilion are picturesque and utilized by many.

 

The Trustees of Knight Park are committed to the enhancement of the park by increased awareness and ownership by the citizens of Collingswood.  There are many wonderful stories and memories of folks who played on the fields, listened to concerts, watched movies, attended their children’s games, even those who have been married or had their wedding pictures taken in the park.

 

We hope that this website will be a place where those memories can be shared and dialog can take place as to how to improve this wonderful asset.We are cognizant of the balance between sports and passive recreational activities. The interest in the park has never been greater, and we hope to channel that interest into positive goals for the future.






Except for special events Knight Park is open sunrise to sunset.
