Trap Pond Partners is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. In September of 2000, we officially partnered with the Division of Parks and Recreation. Most of our membership comes from western Sussex County. As members, we care deeply about preserving Trap Pond Park‘s natural and recreation resources for future generations.
Our main fundraiser is our Annual “Get-in-Gear Family Bike Rally” held on the 1st Saturday morning in May. This event is a wonderful introduction to anyone not familiar with the park. The ride is not a timed event and participants are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful wooded landscape along the way. The bike rally is Trap Pond Partners’ major fund raiser. All monies raised are used to enhance Trap Pond State Park. Through the years, Trap Pond Partners has touched all areas of the Park. To name a few…..
We would like to announce this years top partners;
•Purchased bikes for use by the general public at no cost.
•Provided funds for new baskets for Trap Pond’s own disc golf course.
•Provided funds for the lettering on the Bethesda Church which is a historical building recently renovated by Trap Pond staff.
•Provided campsite funding for weekend campout for Sussex County children of deployed military personnel.
•Provided scholarship funding for nature programs for area children.
There are many volunteer opportunities for members at Trap Pond State Park. Each year, we participate at Nemours Healthy Kid’s Day, Trap Pond’s renowned Halloween festivities and all events where park staff request our help. We are excited about our future involvement with Trap Ponds new state-of-the art nature center currently under construction . . . . more to follow as construction continues.
In realizing the need for pollution free transportation around the park common grounds, Trap Pond Partners proudly donated this golf cart.
