Historic Smithville Park

Map803 Smithville Rd.
Mount Holly, NJ 08060
  • History Museums & Sites
  • Nature


This sprawling park is best explored by self-guided tours (Smithville Mansion, the main historic building on site, offers tours that are designed for adults). Fifteen signs throughout the park describe the history of the area, which was once a model industrial village. Download a map on the county’s Division of Parks website.
Amid 4 miles of well-maintained trails that meander through upland forest, wooded wetlands and a historic village, the highlight here is a floating walkway suspended above Smithville Lake. Get an even closer look at the water with fishing and canoe opportunities.

KIDBIT: Check out the park's butterfly garden before you leave.
