Long Description:
Within Haddonfield, there are very few places, especially within or close to the historic district, that are open spaces and public access land. This is the only one to my knowledge. The Haddonfield 65 Club is responsible for keeping this parcel of land clean, and as such, has "adopted" this land. The township has a net there but, other than that, bring whatever you need, yourself. The posted coordinates are for the entrance just off West Mt. Vernon Avenue. Dusk to dawn.

About the Green Acres Program I once sought to have a category dedicated to the Green Acres lands, but, it was denied based on limited universality. This category is perfect for the Green Acres properties as these sites are strictly (with a few exceptions) for public access.

On the Green Acres page, this is the only unnamed site in Haddonfield. It is listed as Green Acres Field and was established on 9/20/2005, lot 125, block 3. There are additional pictures and information on this patch of land HERE
