Hours of Operation & Admission
Duke Farms is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Saturdays visits between April 1 and November 1 require a free parking pass found at dukefarms.org. Winter Saturdays do not require a parking pass.
Admission continues to be free.
Duke Farms considers the property full when all the parking spaces are occupied. Once this happens, our parking areas will be temporarily closed. This happens often on nice weather days so be sure to plan accordingly by carpooling, planning your trip for early hours, and always have a backup destination (such as the beautiful NJ State Parks, county parks, or municipal parks).
From the Orientation Center, visitors can access more than 18 miles of walking trails, or 12 miles of bicycle trails. Please follow the red pedestrian path by the green roof to cross the road into the park.
If you are coming to Duke Farms with a group of 12 or more people, we ask that you please fill out our Group Registration Form prior to your visit. Please note that a group registration form does not guarantee entrance to Duke Farms, especially on the weekends when we have to close due to parking lot capacity. Kindly note that we do not allow picnics, nor do we "rent" space and review our FAQs before submitting. (No birthdays, weddings, family reunions, picnics, no bring-in catering, etc.)
