Payments can be made online through our Mount Laurel Township website www.mountlaurel.com or can be placed in a Drop Box located on the wall to the right of the main entrance.

In response to Governor Phil Murphy’s executive order on 3/21/2020 Laurel Acres Park will be closed until further notice. Laurel Acres Park has always been a place for families and friends to gather and enjoy the variety of recreation the park has to offer.

We look forward to when our community will once again be able to enjoy all of the parks Mount Laurel has to offer. Until then, visit www.mountlaurel.com for up to date information in closures and cancellations in regards to COVID-19.
