Know ye a bit of Pine Park’s Glory

At the turn of the century, in Lakewood’s golden age of Rockefeller and Gould Estates, Pine Park was acquired by two affluent families for their mansions next to Lakewood Country Club.

In 1920 the 150 acre park became the Newman Preparatory School. The school, with a Cathedral background and originally from Hackensack, prepared New York society children for Ivy League colleges until 1942. During WWII the site became a Navy Meteorological training center for the nearby Lakehurst Naval Air Station.

After the war, the property became a school for foreign missionaries of the Marynoll Fathers. In 1954, it was bought by The Christian Brothers of Ireland and became St. Gabriel's.

Pine Park is now a Lakewood Township Park acquired with NJ “Green Acres” funds. The Lakewood Lions and the SCA first transformed the park into “Ye Village of Pine Park in the Barony of Carillion in the East Kingdom” on September of 1981.
