Rutgers University

Camden Athletic Complex

Camden, NJ

After the demolition of Campbell’s Field in 2019, the Rowan University-Rutgers Camden Board of Governors and Rutgers-Camden marked a new use for the site at Pearl Street, Penn Street, and Delaware Avenue along the waterfront. The design includes a turf baseball field and multipurpose field, an eight-lane track, pole vault and steeple chase, and a clubhouse with locker rooms, bathrooms, and training rooms. The facility also includes 26 new parking spaces with bike racks, new sports lighting, and is equipped with enhanced stormwater management. EwingCole and key Rutgers and municipal stakeholders developed the new athletic complex to be utilized by Rutgers University–Camden’s NCAA Division III soccer, baseball, lacrosse, track, and club teams, as well as by the larger Camden community. Dubbed one of the “best backdrops in college baseball” by the NCAA, players in the batter’s box have a stunning view of the towering Ben Franklin Bridge facing center field and the Philadelphia skyline to the left.
