White-tailed deer management

The Morris County Park Commission is currently responsible for the stewardship of over 18,000 acres of land. It recognizes that a controlled hunting program is the most efficent and affective way available to minimize the severe threats posed to the biodiversity of native flora and fauna by overabundant ehite-tailed deer populations. The MCPC's controlled hunts are specifically used as a population management tool and do not represent recreational hunting opportunities.

Closures


Lewis Morris County Park:

CONSTRUCTION ADVISORY – Beginning October 31, 2016, the Main Park Entrance/Road off Mendham Road will be closed for drainage and road improvement construction. Access to the park will be available via the Sugarloaf Road Entrance or the John Cunningham Parking Lot located on Mendham Road across the street from Sunrise Lake. The Off-leash Area/Dog Park will be Closed during construction.  The Central Park of Morris County Off-leash/Dog Park is open. 
 
It is anticipated that the final paving of the park road will be completed in the early Spring when the asphalt plants reopen.
 
Although the road looks drivable there are raised storm drains along the road which make for less than safe driving conditions and it would be more difficult to maintain the road during inclement winter conditions.
 
The Saturn Playground located by the Doe Meadow picnic area is closed for renovation.
 
 
Central Park of Morris County:
CONSTRUCTION ADVISORY - The Playground at Central Park will be closed the week of January 30th for maintenance and construction.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
