Community Park North lies between Mountain Ave and Route 206 and across Route 206 from Community Park Swimming Pool and Community Park South. The park's western boundary abuts Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve, and its southeastern boundary abuts Route 206. Visitors can reach the Park from a parking area off Mountain Avenue or from a footpath that leads into the tract from Route 206 near the Valley Road traffic light.

The park, a generally square tract of 71 acres, encompasses both wooded ground and open space with walking and hiking trails. The meadow areas contain an amphitheater, pond, paved pathway and seating benches.

In 1992, a 13 acre section just east of the Mountain Avenue parking lot was rededicated as Pettoranello Gardens. For more information, visit the Princeton/Pettoranello Foundation Website.  

The Recreation Department monitors the ice conditions at the pond in the winter months to determine whether skating may be allowed. For more information on ice skating, visit the Recreation Website.

In order to fish at CP North Pond, individuals must obtain a fishing permit as outlined by the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife

To request use of the amphitheatre, contact the Recreation Department.
