History

504.66 acres of the park were donated by Edna T. Brundage and by the Brundage Family. 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.

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.
