1Washington Lake Park
Washington Lake Park, covering 330 acres, is the largest municipal park in New Jersey. The Park was developed over the course of many years with municipal funds and assistance from the NJ Green Acres Program and was dedicated in 1992. The Park trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. The Park boasts 3 playground areas, all are ADA compliant and two are handicap accessible. Our youth sports programs get to enjoy our many athletic fields including softball, baseball, soccer, and lacrosse. Open to the public are basketball courts, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, three covered pavilions that are available to reserve, Cedar Lake where you can fish (fish must be released after being caught), paved and natural walking trails, multi-use recreation area available to reserve that includes Futsal, Dodgeball and Basketball and restroom facilities. To rent a pavilion or picnic area, a field or to book an event at the Amphitheater you can print an application below. Applications are now being processed at Washington Lake Park.   

Cedar Lake Park is our brand new dog park that you can access off of Chapel Heights road! Dogs MUST be leashed on paved walkways and outside of gated areas. Dogs ARE NOT allowed in the main park, the original fenced-in dog park is no longer accessible.  In addition to the Dog Park at Cedar Lake Park, Washington Township’s leashed dog park is located along the banks of Grenloch Lake at Ron Heck Memorial Park in Grenloch. The bucolic setting at Memorial Park in Grenloch includes: rustic walking trails, a stoned covered parking area, a split-rail fence and large “doggie pot” waste containers outfitted with plastic disposal bags. The park can be accessed from Park Avenue or Black Horse Pike. It is open from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm and patrolled by Township Park Rangers. All dogs visiting the park must be leashed, licensed and up to date on their vaccinations.
