So New Jersey has shut down its state parks until… well, we don’t know when (see the full list of closures ). My only comment about this is “Ladies and gentlemen, your state government at work!” And we’ll leave it at that.
The good news? County, local, and private parks to the rescue! Below is a sampling of parks and trails that are open for business as usual (note that this list is not definitive, just some of my favorites). So shake your fists collectively in anger toward Trenton, then work out that anger by going for a beautiful hike this weekend anyway!
Sports players. Restaurants. Clothes. Local personalities. It’s a popular word in the greater Philadelphia area.
But the greatest throwback of them of them all might be the Sanitarium Playground.
