Banchoff Park

Banchoff Park *

Banchoff Park is a 99 acre park on Mountain View Rd tucked into the Mountainview Neighborhood in the western section of Ewing. It was named for Incarnation School kindergarten teacher, Ann Banchoff who was also a member of the Township Committee. It is the site of the former Reeder Farm where George Washington stopped for breakfast on his way to Trenton.


We have closed the Banchoff Park tennis courts until further notice. The courts are in disrepair and are not safe for use at this time. Tennis players can still use the 2 courts behind ESCC and 6 courts at EHS when the school is not using them.  New courts are in the process of construction at Antheil School to replace the courts at EHS. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Banchoff Park is great for

Passive recreation: Enjoy a quiet walk on our walking, biking and hiking trails, a picnic, take the kids to the playground and let the dog run free and socialize with other dogs in our newly refurbished dog park.  

We have followed recommended best practices in the establishment of our new dog park and created separate small and large dog areas. Dogs under 35 pounds are considered "small;" larger pooches are those over 35 pounds.  Puppies, too, have their own "safe space" away from the roughhousing of larger pets.  The Large and Small Dog spaces each have their own water fountains for people and pets that are operational 365 days a year.  A water fountain for the Puppy Park will be coming.
