FREE Events at our Gloucester County Parks this April

The Gloucester County Board of Commissioners and the Department of Parks and Recreation are hosting events through April for the whole family. 

“Our parks are some of the hidden jewels of the county. As Spring ramps up, you won’t want to miss your opportunity to visit the parks for some of our events or maybe just a walk around the grounds,” said Director Frank J. DiMarco. 

All park events are free to the public, but some require pre-registration. 

“Spring is just a preview of all the great things we have planned in our parks. We’ve got a jam-packed schedule for everyone to enjoy,” said Commissioner Jim Jefferson, liaison to the Department of Parks and Recreation.
