Locust Street Park

Both sides of Locust Street between Kenilworth Avenue and the railroad

This parcel is presently a pleasant open area, in sharp contrast to the Farmers Storage facility previously on the site. Demolition was conducted in anticipation of site redevelopment. A combination of limiting factors including poor drainage, wetlands, and the presence of a flood plain made the site less attractive for development. Negotiations among the owner, developer, and Moorestown Township resulted in preservation of this 4.5-acre property as a neighborhood park. The property was acquired in 2001 for $345,000.
