Please note: Team Zuhl does NOT represent the owners of Bowcraft OR the Developer that is purchasing the property. We are NOT involved with this in any way, we are only reporting on the information.
The site of the Bowcraft Amusement Park on Route 22 in Scotch Plains has been sold. Bowcraft was open this past weekend but will be closing soon. A developer has purchased the property and plans to build apartments and townhouses. On Monday, September 26th the Scotch Plains Planning Board will review the application. The current plan would consist of 190 apartments, 10 town houses, a swimming pool, club house and parking for more than 400 cars. The plan includes 40 affordable housing units to be constructed.
The park which first opened in 1946 featured rides, arcade games and for many years had miniature golf as a feature will be missed by children young and old.
