This is a photo of the original Garden State Park gatehouse, constructed in 1942 (photo taken on November 15, 2011). This is the last remaining structure of the historic horse racetrack, once home to the famous Jersey Derby. With the exception of this gatehouse, The Garden State Park site had been demolished in recent years and converted into a retail and residential development. While the understanding was that the gatehouse was supposed to be renovated by the developers as part of the new development, gatehouse renovation has yet to occur and the historic structure is falling into disrepair.
