I was born in Burlington in 71,but moved to Medford before I was ten.My grandmom still lived on High street(directly across from springside school)so I would vist all the time.We would walk up to Mattson's for ice cream(they made theyre own).The house I lived in was on Columbus road by what was 5 points intersection.Across the street from us was a farmers field but it is now "Steeple chase". We would walk a block down to 7-11 to get slurpee's. Some other things I remember growing up in Burlington include..
Sylvan Lakes
Kiddie city
The bakery on High street near 130
The laundramat across from the bakery.
The old Acme. "super-saver"
Holiday Lake
Willingboro Plaza (IT SEEMED SO BIG as a kid) they had a circus come to the parking lot one year.
Connie Curtains Marina(spent many summers there)
Although I lived about a mile or more from the Bristol Bridge, I could climb a tree in my yard and see it easily!
Stewarts drive in on 130.

The Beverly Road Firehouse Dance. The Pheasant Inn (Henry's Bar) on 130. Any members of Uncle Warren's Chess Club out there? It's was back on a dead end across from Laurel Hill cemetary. Uncle Warren was the bus man at Burlington diner in early 70's. The colored candy store smack dab in the middle of the colored country ghetto otherside of 130. Sorry for the language I can't remember any other way to discribe it and nothing racist is meant by it.

Anyone know what is happening with the Burlington Center Mall? I haven't been there since I left NJ, but heard that it is close to shutting down.

That information is incorrect. The Burlington center Mall is or was bought by a new owner and is going to be revitalized. It's clearly about time! http://www.phillyburbs.com/my_town/burlington...

Robert Hall's clothing store at Sunset and 541.
The "pits" on the delaware near The TP bridge. If you were lucky, cops would confiscate your beer for themselves and just send you on your way.
Hanging out at Smith School in city on weekend nights.
Tony's at the end of High St (now Cafe Gallery). Parents would take us there on Friday nights.
Working at Gregory's with Spezzano, Jackamonis(RIP) and F Leroy(RIP).

Wow! I enjoyed reading all these posts! I am about the age of some of the commentators, probably a little younger, but I just moved to Burlington about 6 years now and have kid now, we are slowly finding the cool parks, and hidden treasures the area has to offer, I grew up in a small town in Central Jersey, but have similar memories of now defunct arcades, Drive-ins, and small pizza/ice-cream shops!
To update:
-yes Slyvan lake is still run and operated by Twp., passes for season are reasonable but you can get "shut out" on popular days.
-There is an Italian restaurant that makes gelato and hand turned Ice-cream on Sunset, maybe new, last 8-10 years or so?
-There is no more Drugstore at Sunset and Salem. but further off the 7-11 is there and still see kids walking to and fro!
-B-City planted a Christmas tree (near the Anchor) at the renovated River side Park, My wife and I say it planted and take our pitcher in front of it every year! I used to be the same height, it's now 20 feet tall or so, there is also a built up fitness trail along the Delaware, with little stations for pull-up, etc, including some weights that are tethered, Very nice!
-The B-City improvements are helping in the past 6 years I have seen more out of town plates and even ran into a couple from Vermont, staying at a B&B on High Street! So it's great to have a nice scenic place to picnic and listen to free concerts in the summertime so close to home!
-I have to find Mill Creek Park, if I do I will let you know if they have a UFO like object!

Was Burlington Twp. always kind of a black town or was it like Willingboro which was white then turned black?
