I’m closely working with Amy Lamperti of the Playground Guide, a comprehensive guide to all the playgrounds in Sussex County.

This is an excerpt from her fantastic listing about the Hand in Hand Playground at Veteran’s Memorial Park. Over 40 of Sussex County parks are featured with color pictures in this guide + helpful information on every park in the county.

These include parks in the north section of Sussex- Stokes State Park in Sandyston, Rolling Hills Primary School in Vernon, Clifton E. Lawrence School in Wantage, High Point State Park and Woodbourne Park. Please support our efforts in providing parents information for them to enjoy the outdoors with their kids by clicking on this link. Each purchase through the link helps us keep going and finding new places to explore 🙂
