Camden’s First Ever Parks and Open Space Plan

Camden’s First Ever Parks and Open Space Plan

Cooper’s Ferry Partnership is proud of its work and role in the development of the City of Camden’s first ever Parks and Open Space Plan. Cooper’s Ferry and The Trust for Public Land drafted the plan in partnership with the City of Camden, Camden County, and the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority. 

The plan is a culmination of a collaborative effort that engaged over 500 community members and stakeholders over twelve months in developing a vision for the future of the City’s park system.

Cooper’s Ferry is grateful and appreciative for the partnership developed with Sidney and Sandy Brown and their support from the Sidney and Sandy Brown Foundation for the creation and development of this data-driven plan.

“Working together with strong and committed Camden partners, we are extremely proud to be part of this inclusive and equitable vision for the future park system in Camden City. This is a continuation of our commitment to building strong communities and improving the quality of life for Camden residents,” said Sidney Brown, CEO of NFI.  

The Camden Parks and Open Space Plan creates a roadmap for how to achieve the goal of the 10-Minute Walk promise. Camden Mayor Frank Moran signed on to the 10-Minute Walk campaign, a nationwide movement led by The Trust for Public Land, National Recreation and Park Association, and Urban Land Institute, to ensure that all City residents have safe, easy access to a high-quality park within a 10-minute walk of home by 2050.
