Weymouth Furnace is so named because of an iron forge that was located on the property in the 1800s. The area became part of the Atlantic County Park System in 1966, according to atlantic-county.org.

The area is popular with canoeists, haymakers, and people tubing on the river.  It's also a popular spot for families for picnics and swimming, even though "No Swimming" signs are posted.
