James Andrew Memorial County Park has a total of 588.89 acres, 504.66 of which were donated by Edna T. Brundage and by the Brundage Family. The trail sections in the park access the expanding network of the Randolph Township trails system. There are 5.7 miles of trails in the Park with an aggregate surface.

Den Brook, a major tributary of the Rockaway River, begins in wetlands above James Andrews Memorial County Park. Within the Park, a small brook flowing into Shongum Lake contains a healthy population of brook trout, native to the stream.

There are four trail heads, or access points to James Andrews Memorial County Park.  They are Freedom Park on Millbrook Avenue; Town Hall on Millbrook Avenue; Hidden Valley Park on Everdale Road; and on Radtke Road. Along the trail, just below Freedom Park in Randolph Township, is a 9-11 Memorial to the four Randolph Township residents lost in the World Trade Center. A stone with a plaque dedicating the park is located on West Hanover Avenue.

 

Fall and Winter Activities:

Hiking and wildlife viewing are the favorite fall activities at this facility. When the snow falls, you can enjoy the brisk winter weather by cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

 

History:

The first parcel of land was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Brundage on May 1, 1956, and the Park was dedicated on October 12, 1960. The 75-acre parcel was the first acreage listed on the newly formed Park Commission land inventory. The trail section in James Andrews Memorial County Park were the first of many in the ever expanding network of the Randolph Trails System. The Brundage Family requested that the park be named after a local milkman who was a great community spirited man. Further information can be obtained through the Randolph Park and Recreation Office. The Morris County Park Commission has worked closely with Randolph Township since 1999 to establish a trail system throughout the Park.

 

Hours of Operation:

James Andrews Memorial County Park is open daily Sunrise to Sunset throughout the year.
