Horses, Drivers and Road Courtesy
Tewksbury is full of trails, many of which cross public roads. If a driver sees horses and riders waiting to cross, they should slow down for their own safety and the safety of the horses and riders. Please do not beep the horn or make sudden gestures that could startle the horses and cause an accident.  Drive under 5 mph when horses are present.  Do not speed through the narrow roads, over bridges and through the hamlets of the Township. Tewksbury has many narrow roads and bridges in addition to our small villages.  Follow the parking rules for cars and horse trailers in each park.  Please obey traffic laws.

Hunting Information
Hunting on Township property is allowed by permit and is regulated by the Township Police in accordance with State Fish and Wildlife rules and regulations during hunting season.

Hunting is prohibited on Sundays. Signs and schedules will be posted during hunting season at kiosks located in the parks.

Farmers in New Jersey can obtain State issued special farmer permits in accordance with State Fish and Wildlife rules and regulations. Hunting on Township property by farmers is limited to the hours of darkness, when parks are closed to the public. Notice and signs will be posted when hunts are scheduled and trails leading to the hunted areas will be blocked until the hunt is completed.
