Bowcraft, formerly known as Bowcraft Playland, was an amusement park located in Scotch Plains, New Jersey. Established in 1946, the park entertained generations of visitors with its classic rides, games, and family-friendly attractions. Situated on approximately 10 acres of land, Bowcraft offered a nostalgic and laid-back atmosphere, making it a beloved destination for local families and thrill-seekers alike.

One of the highlights of Bowcraft was its collection of classic amusement park rides. Visitors could enjoy attractions such as the Super Slide, Tilt-A-Whirl, and Scrambler, as well as gentle rides for younger children like the Kiddie Whip and Carousel. The park also featured a variety of carnival games and arcades, providing opportunities for guests to test their skills and win prizes. Additionally, Bowcraft hosted special events throughout the year, including live entertainment, fireworks displays, and seasonal celebrations.

In addition to its rides and games, Bowcraft offered amenities such as picnic areas, food concessions, and a souvenir shop, allowing guests to relax and enjoy a full day of fun at the park. Although it was smaller in scale compared to larger amusement parks, Bowcraft had a loyal following and a unique charm that endeared it to visitors of all ages. However, in 2018, Bowcraft announced that it would be permanently closing its doors, marking the end of an era for this beloved New Jersey attraction.

While Bowcraft may no longer be in operation, its legacy lives on in the memories of those who visited and enjoyed its rides and attractions over the years. For many, Bowcraft Playland remains a cherished part of their childhood, and its closure represents the end of a chapter in New Jersey's amusement park history.
