Haddonfield has 4 major bodies of water, all of which have some type of dam in them. Driscoll Pond is a shallow man-made pond where many types of animals meet. It is located next to Hopkins Pond, both of which are very deep for their small size. Evans Pond is directly above Wallworth Pond, both located in Wallworth Park. All of these ponds empty into Cooper River.
Haddonfield is the site of the largest dinosaur paleontology discoveries in the world. In 1838, gigantic bones were found, and 20 years later, were fully excavated to reveal the first relatively complete set of dinosaur bones. The site, now known as, Hadrosaurus Park, can be found at the end of Maple Ave. Another historic site is the Indian King Tavern on Kings Highway where the first New Jersey Legislature met.
