PRESERVING the RICHNESS of the OUTDOORS

Jones Woods winter BPA

Burnham Park Association

Burnham Park was donated to the Town of Morristown, New Jersey, by the visionary Frederick and Catherine Burnham in 1911 to provide passive open space for the enjoyment of those who did not have large tracts of land themselves and to provide a natural woodland space for the relaxation of the public. 

The Burnham Park Association is a nonprofit, grassroots all-volunteer organization founded in 1948 to serve as stewards of Burnham Park, Jones Woods, the Green Strip and surrounding areas. The BPA is dedicated to preserving, protecting environmentally sensitive lands, viewsheds, critical natural resources and historic sites. It collaborates with other organizations on various projects and events, and works to educate area citizens, promoting community engagement with the goal of preserving a beautiful area for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations. ​
