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. Unfortunately, congregating in groups, and visiting parks goes against the “stay at home” orders the Governor enacted today. 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.
