Scope and Content

This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the Jewish Community Centre, located between Marlton Pike Road and North Park Drive in Camden, New Jersey. Oberlander worked on this project in 1954. The building was design in the early 1950s, by architect Vincent G. Kling. The project includes various spaces for activities and sports fields such as a tennis court, a green, a handball field, a softball field, and badminton and volleyball fields. Oberlander's design also includes a parking lot surrounded by trees in front of the centre, as well as a children's playground, a sitting area, and a children's garden at the back of the centre.

The project series contains design development drawings, such as a preliminary landscape design, grading and paving plans, planting plans, reference working drawings for the building, and general landscape plans with list of plans.
