phillipsburg_walters-park-12I’m closely working with Amy Lamperti of the Playground Guide, a comprehensive guide to all the playgrounds in Warren County. This is an excerpt from her fantastic listing about the Walters Park in Phillipsburg. Over 25 Warren County parks are featured with color pictures in this guide + helpful information on every park in the county including those in neighboring Sussex County. These include parks in the north section of Warren-Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Sandyston, River Park Playground in Hackettstown, Green Acres in Independence and Knowlton Recreation 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 🙂
