Crows Woods woods are open

Following Gov. Phil Murphy’s announcement on Wednesday that state parks will reopen on Saturday, May 2, the Borough commissioners announced on Friday that the walking path and wooded area of Crows Woods will be open for public use from 6am on Saturday.

The park will close at 6pm each day. Parking will be limited to the lot next to the concession stand.

All other fields, playgounds, concession stands, bathrooms, and pavilions in Haddonfield will remain closed.

In their statement, the commissioners noted: “Visitors must practice social distancing and stay six (6) feet apart from others (social distancing is not required for immediate family members, caretakers, household members, or romantic partners). No organized group activities, activities involving contact with others, or sports are permitted. If residents & visitors do not abide by these restrictions, the Commissioners may be forced to close the path and wooded area once again, so we ask for your cooperation and thank you for your understanding. All dogs must be on leash.”

Violent winds fell large tree

Winds that ripped briefly through Haddonfield on Tuesday afternoon brought down a large tree on W. Summit Avenue, between Warwick Road and Chews Landing Road.

The tree fell onto a car parked on W. Summit, opposite Evans Avenue.
