Lake Lenape East
Reopens July 19, 2014
after Phase II Construction

 The Atlantic County Park at 753 Park Road on the eastern shores of Lake Lenape in Mays Landing has reopened after an extensive make over. The facility has been enhanced with improved ADA access, two new lake front pavilions, and a totally refurbished hall. The Lake Lenape East Park’s lake front pavilions can be rented on a daily basis. The facility also includes volleyball courts, a playground and a softball field that offer fun activities for picnickers and group events. Non-motorized boats can pull up on the beach and enjoy the Park via the lake.
Directions to Lake Lenape Park East

Lake Lenape East is just a short paddle from the County Park at Lake Lenape West, 6303 Old Harding Highway, where we provide a public boat ramp and campground, playground and more. The beach at Lake Lenape East is a great place to relax. All outdoor activities at the new and improved Lake Lenape East Park are open seven days a week from 7:30 am til dusk.

The Atlantic County Park System reflects our ongoing commitment to the preservation of open space and the provision of ample opportunities for outdoor recreation. The Atlantic County Park System offers a wide variety of recreational and leisure pursuits. Park programs include large group events, crafts, environmental education, and children's programs.

The Park System’s seventeen parks and facilities include:  Oscar E. McClinton Jr. Waterfront Park in Atlantic City, Estell Manor, selected as having some of the best recreational activities by readers in the 2013 Best of the Press poll, Lake Lenape, Weymouth Furnace, Penny Pot, Gaskill, Riverbend, Whirlpool Island, Galloway Tract, Leeds' Point and Veterans Memorial Park. The County Park System also maintains three facilities -John F. Gaffney Green Tree Golf Course, and Camp Acagisca and the Atlantic County Bikeway. There are also many other parks in Atlantic County that are not run by the county government.

Because Atlantic County is one of the most diverse counties in the state, each park in the county is unique and has something different to offer. Be sure to visit all of them!
