Woodville park is approximately 100 acres in size – that’s 20 times the size of Gloucester Point Beach Park! It is located in Ordinary off of Bray’s Point Road. The park was once part of a plantation or farm called “Woodville.”

This new nature park contains both wetlands and woodlands where athletic facilities, walking trails, gardens and possibly an amphitheater are all planned for the future..

The park land was a gift to Gloucester County by the Lanciano Family.

An athletic field and sand soccer court have now been completed at the park.  A nearly $500,000 entrance and service road for the park was constructed with grant and donated funds. Other roads, parking lots, a second athletic field and habitat pond are under currently construction.


From the Peninsula Cross the Coleman Bridge – (Route 17 North) travel through 8 stoplights to Bray’s Point Road Turn right onto Bray’s Point Road and travel about 7-tenths of a mile, Bray’s Point Road bears to the left. Turn left and the park is immediately to your left.
