Parks & Recreation Division Supported
By The Sea Cadet Corps Of Hunterdon County
The Sea Cadet Corps Of Hunterdon County voluntarily assist the Parks and Recreation Division in support of the over 300,000 visitors who annually enjoy the parks and participate in the many programs and events Hunterdon County has to offer.

Freeholder John W. King, the Board’s Liaison for Parks and Recreation, said, “The Sea Cadet Corps Of Hunterdon County are greatly appreciated and we applaud them for their willingness, at such a young age, to do so much. Offering assistance at large-crowd events or maintaining a nature trail are a small part of what they do, but everything they do goes a long way for Hunterdon County and the Parks Division.”
