Childs-Kirk Memorial Park in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey

This is a Swiggle Stix® Bridge at the Childs-Kurk Memorial Park. Kids have to balance and hold on as they walk across.


This week, my husband invited me out for a lunch date. He talked about grabbing lunch from somewhere and then heading to a park near his office to eat. It was a beautiful day and considering the summer days will soon give way to chillier fall days, I, of course, said yes. Imagine his surprise and mine when we arrived at Childs-Kirk Memorial Park and it was a park that I never knew existed. He laughed because he actually knew an Egg Harbor Township playground that I didn’t. That doesn’t usually happen. He knew what would come next. I would need to take pictures and write about it for Jersey Family Fun. So while the weather started to rain after we ate, I was still determined to get pictures of the Childs-Kirk Memorial Park before the rain got too heavy and he had to go back to work.


There are actually TWO playgrounds at Childs-Kirk Memorial Park. Allow me to share my favorite parts of this Egg Harbor Township park.
