Cranberry Lake Byram Township New Jersey
Frenche’s Grove Amusement Park 1902 to 1910
The Delaware, Western and Lackawanna Railroad Company built an amusement park, picnic grove, dance pavilion, and boat rental concession on a point of land called Frenche’s Grove. The footbridge provided the train passengers and the hotel patrons the necessary link between the depot and hotel and the recreational park. This combination of transportation, lodging, and entertainment brought many visitors to the area, sometimes as many as a thousand a weekend, and the hotel and the recreational park prospered for several years.
