Green Acres Success Stories

Johnson Park

Camden County, Cooper's Ferry Development Corporation, the Camden Redevelopment Agency and Rutgers University have completed a restoration of Eldridge R. Johnson Park to its original 1930 grandeur. Camden County and Cooper’s Ferry used Green Acres grant funding for this project. The Johnson Park Rehabilitation has restored an historic park in the Cooper Grant neighborhood of Camden City. It is one of the most significant properties in the City from an architectural, cultural and historic perspective. Included in the rehabilitation was the restoration of water features, concrete walks and plaza, seating, lighting, plantings, and also improved barrier-free access to the Walt Whitman Cultural Arts Center.
