Hedden County Park will be closed for two weeks due to negative activities by some park patrons, stated Morris County officials. The negative activities include dumping of trash, starting fires, alcohol use, and blocking waterways, among other issues, the said.

Due to problems, Hedden County Park, located in Dover, Mine Hill, and Randolph, was closed starting on Tuesday, July 14 and is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, July 28.

“Due to an increase of negative activities — numerous campfires, trash discarded throughout park, burning of a trash dumpster, impeding the flow of Jackson Brook in order to create swimming holes, alcohol consumption without permits, and abuse of public restrooms, the Morris County Park Commission is closing the park,” said Park Commision Executive Director David Helmer.
