Municipal Complex Park

Situated on 40 acres off of Upper Ferry Road, by Municipal Building. The military park is located behind the municipal building. Maj. Gen. Betor led the efforts to create the park honoring Ewing veterans, complete with a display of a Navy A4 Skyhawk that flew from the USS Saratoga aircraft carrier during the Korean War, and an M60A1 tank from the New Jersey National Guard. In May 2001, the Veterans Memorial Park was rededicated as the Major General George J. Betor Veterans Memorial Park. The park also contains Air Force, Army, Navy Merchant Marine and Coast Guard memorials, as well as a Purple Heart Walk further honoring Ewing veterans.

Betor, who lived most of his life in Ewing, served with the Marines in the Pacific in every major engagement until VJ day in 1945. He rose from private to master gunnery sergeant, and then won a commission as a second lieutenant. He later transferred to the Army and in 1948 joined the National Guard, where he rose to major general before retiring. He passed away in 2009.

Veterans Memorial Park is great for...

Passive Recreation - Enjoy a quick walk on our walking - running trail or a picnic under the pavilion.  Dog lovers will delight to see the volunteers from EASEL along the path on a Saturday morning conducting dog socialization and training.

Active Recreation - The soccer fields at Veterans Park are a major component of our recreational soccer programs.


This facility has 2 distinct parts: the active recreational area across the drive from the municipal building and the Maj. Gen. George J. Betor Veterans Memorial Park, behind the building.
