Plattmount Park

Plattmount Park Plattmount Park is a four-acre private park located between the north side of Claypit Creek and Lind
(1)

The Plattmount neighborhood was planned in 1907, and most of the original residents built summer cottages there, some of which still stand today. The Stone Church Trolley Station, and its proximity, along with that of the water access, would have made Plattmount an attractive area. The ad for the lot sales described Plattmount as one of the ‘most picturesque properties near the Jersey waterfront’.

The name Plattmount comes from a combination of the ancient Mount farm, part of which was handed down through the heirs of Lydia Jane Platt, a daughter of Andrew Mount. On the original plot plan for Plattmount, filed in Freehold, the Plattmount land was set aside. The original developers sold the park and associated development to the Land and Loan Company of Plattsburg, NY. In 1917, that company auctioned off lots for home to be built, but not the park. In 1981, it was discovered that a real estate developer was seeking to buy the land that makes up the protected area, likely to build homes. To ensure that no development of the land occurred, Plattmount Park Homeowners’ Corporation (Homeowners’ Corp) was formed. The Homeowners’ Corp raised money and purchased the land from the Land and Loan Company with the deed saying that the land forever be used by the owners of the Plattmount Property as a recreational area and as access to the water. Approximately 75 families are entitled to use the land as members of the Homeowners’ Corp. The Homeowners’ Corp main goal is to maintain the lands’ beauty, ensure that no development will occur and protect the economic benefit the land has on neighborhood property value.
