Anderson Park

(Previously Campton Community Park)

In the early 1990s, the acquisition and development of a large park site on Brown Road was a grassroots effort to provide local baseball and softball facilities to the fast growing population of the township.  The land for Anderson Park was purchased in October 1992 at a special meeting in which the residents of the community voted to access land/cash funds for the purchase of land from Robert and Delores Anderson.  Development plans came from residents’ input and construction funding came through public grants, private contributions, township monies, land/cash funds and donation of time and materials by township residents.

Inaugurated in 1997, this 50-acre park offers playground equipment, playing fields with spectator seating, basketball and tennis courts, jogging trails, and open space for hours of recreation. Convenient parking is provided, as well as picnic tables and restroom facilities.  Volunteer opportunities are available to maintain the prairie gardens. Click here for more information.

Originally called Campton Community Park, this property was renamed Anderson Park in 2007 to honor the late Robert Anderson (former Township Supervisor, Township Assessor, and long-time Campton Resident).
