Map Description:

In the summer of 2010, Cumberland County commissioned an Open Space & Recreation Study which will become an element of the county Master Plan. In the process, all of the open space in the county was analyzed. This open space consists of: state, non-profit, county, and municipal owned. Also examined were wetlands and restricted lands (CAFRA & Pinelands.) Wildlife trails and the Rails to Trails Study were also looked at, along with Threatened and Endangered ranks 3 & 4, and bald eagle foraging territory. The outcome was a recommendation of the best locations for future preservation.
