Located off of Grove Street on either side of Hopkins Lane, it features a bird sanctuary and a .6-mile loop trail that leads through wooded, hilly terrain around the pond. The pond is famed for being the site of the 1858 discovery of the first complete dinosaur skeleton. Prior to that, only dinosaur fragments had been found. The discovery was responsible for establishing the Academy of Natural Sciences in nearby Philadelphia and inspiring Haddonfield resident Edward Drinker Cope to set out across the continent in a dinosaur hunting competition that would become known as the ‘Bone Wars’.
